Description

Walker Evans - an essential character of XXth century's photography - dedicated his life to produce down-to-earth, natural portraits.
His photographs of America struck by Great Depression, his portfolios published in Fortune magazine and his "documentary style" undoubtedly influenced a large amount of his contemporaries and successors.

Showing the America of his days, melting into the life of farmers and rednecks as well as city-dwellers', the work of the photographer can be boiled down to one big picture : highlighting the heterogeneity of the American society.

This sublime retrospective recounts the whole career of Walker Evans, through more than 400 documents, coming from the most significant collections wolrdwide.
