Walker Evans

by Judith Keller
Publisher's Description
In 1933, still quite early in his photographic career, Walker Evans was commissioned for a trip to Cuba during which he was to make photographs for The Crime of Cuba, journalist Carleton Beals's attempt to reveal the corruption and injustice attending the reign of the Cuban dictator Gerardo Machado. This new book from the Getty Museum draws on the Getty's vast archives of Evans photographs and showcases sixty works Evans made on that trip. The course that Evans's artistic development would take is evident in these photographs, adding considerably to our appreciation of the artist.
