Walker Evans

My tutor suggested I take a look at Walker Evans’ street photography.

Evans took most of his images during America’s Great Depression. His black and white images captured the raw brutality of the times. He was less concerned with sharpness of image, and more concerned with instinctively capturing the moment with whatever light was available. He often included words within his images too – these words add an extra depth and meaning to his work.
