Walker Evans’ Great Depression photos at Stanford

Thursday, February 2, 2012

imageCoincidental or not, given the sour economic times, Stanford’s Cantor Arts Center is exhibiting 150 black and white photographs of the late Walker Evans chronicling the Great Depression through April 8. Among them are photos from his 1936 southern sojourn and collaboration with James Agee for Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. From the press release, there also appears to be plenty of his other work.

Pictured: That’s Evans’ “Alabama Tenant Farmer,” courtesy of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
