// SELECTED AS ONE OF THE 10 BEST PHOTO BOOKS OF 2015 //

“Walker Evans is one of the towering figures in the history of photography. This massive book, which traces his career from his earliest photographic experiments to his most well-known works, is an essential volume for any photography library.”

Slate.com
“Experts may differ as to the greatest 20th century American photographer: Edward Weston? Diane Arbus? Robert Frank? This book makes an exhaustive and convincing case for Walker Evans, who brought the irresistible force of his intelligent eye to bear on the immovable facts of the world. The best of his pictures still smolder with the heat of that fusion.”

San Francisco Chronicle
“[Walker Evans: Depth of Field] is a comprehensive and extensively illustrated publication that investigates the trans-Atlantic roots of Evans’ practice and his development of a compellingly lyrical documentary style. The book examines in detail the complex development of Evans’ oeuvre from his early street photography, to his iconic photographs of the Great Depression to his later embrace of colour photography.”
