Walker Evans, essay by John Szarkowski


Twelve masterworks of photography scrupulously reproduced in sheet-fed gravure, large prints in a volume on fine Bristol card, interleaved and bound in buckram. A unique presentation. Out of print, much sought. Limited copies available in paper with protective cloth case. "A work of art–brilliantly conceived; surely sets a new standard against which serious photographic books will be measured."
–John Szarkowski, Museum of Modern Art

"He records . . . the naive creative spirit, imperishable and inherent in the ordinary man . . . in an epoch so crass and so corrupt that the only purity of the ordinary individual is unconscious."
–Lincoln Kirstein

"It is the particularization of the universal that is important. . . . It is the unique field of the artist and Evans is an artist. It is ourselves we see, ourselves lifted from a parochial setting. We see what we have not heretofore realized, ourselves made worthy in our anonymity."
–William Carlos Williams
