Walker Evans
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.
