Description
HISTORY OF ART & DESIGN STYLES: FROM C 1900 -. The progenitor of the documentary tradition in American photography, his principal subject was the vernacular - the indigenous expressions of a people found in roadside stands, cheap cafes, advertisements and small-town main streets. For fifty years, from the late 1920s to the early 1970s, Evans recorded the American scene with the nuance of a poet and the precision of a surgeon, creating an encyclopedic visual catalogue of modern America in the making. First published by The Museum of Modern Art in 1938, and often out of print since then, American Photographs has been the key touchstone for photographers and those who seek to understand the lyrical potential of the medium. This 75th Anniversary Edition, with sumptuous duotone plates complementing the elegant restraint of the original typography and design, makes Evans' landmark book available again.
