He was first noted for his portrayal of the Depression-era South in the book Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, and for a stunning early Museum of Modern Art exhibition, American Photographs. Evans created intimate, personal records of the American scene for some five decades.One of the finest collections of Walker Evans work in private hands is that of Marian and Benjamin A. Hill of Atlanta. Their collection of some 132 original Evans prints was acquired in part directly from the photographer. Eighty-eight of these, including two Polaroids and 13 never-before-published images and variant views of some of Evans most famous photographs, are superbly reproduced here and discussed in an illuminating essay.Walker Evans -- Simple Secrets accompanies an exhibition that opened in March 1998 at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, and travels to the International Center of Photography, New York, in September and to the Detroit Institute of Arts in April 1999.
