Walker Evans: Decade by Decade

June 12, 2010 - September 05, 2010


Walker Evans Burlesque Theater ChicagoConsidered by many to be the most influential of any American photographer of the twentieth century, Walker Evans changed the way Americans view themselves, their society, and their country through his unflinching democratic visual description. Curated by James Crump, Walker Evans: Decade by Decade shows iconic images spanning Evans’s forty-six year career, including his Southern work, rare prints from international travels, and selections from his rarely-exhibited Victorian House series.


Organized by the Cincinnati Art Museum.
