Walker Evans began photographing in the late 1920s. He moved quickly to define his aesthetic and his subject matter:
straight and sober photographs of American everyday life and its environs. Within a decade he had produced
some of the most significant photographs of the twentieth century, exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York
and published two landmark books (American Photographs in 1938 and Let us Now Praise Famous Men with James
Agee, in 1941). He wrote art and film reviews for Time (1943-45), was employed by Fortune between 1945 and
1965 and taught at Yale thereafter.
David Campany is a writer, curator and Reader in Photography at the University of Westminster, London. His books
include Art and Photography (Phaidon 2003), Photography and Cinema (Reaktion 2008), ANONYMES: l’amérique
sand nom- photographies et cinema (Steidl/Le Bal, 2010) and Jeff Wall: Picture for Women (Afterall, MIT 2011).
His essays have appeared in numerous books. He writes for Aperture, Frieze, Photoworks, Source, The Oxford Art
Journal, and PA magazine.
