“Photography writer and historian David Campany will give an illustrated talk about the little-known magazine work of Walker Evans. Working as writer, editor, and designer as well as a photographer, Evans carved out a space for himself in the American press as unlikely as it was extraordinary. Setting his own assignments on everything from Sundays in London and shop displays to graffiti and unemployment, Evans made dozens of poetic and polemical photo-essays.”
