About Walker Evans
Walker Evans was one of America’s best photographers and photojournalists of the 20 century. He was famously known for his documentary and photography works on the “Great Depression” for USA’s Farm Security Administration (FSA).
He was an indigene of St. Louis, Missouri. However, he spent portions of his youthful years in New York City, Toledo, Ohio, and Chicago. He received education from Loomis Institute, Mercersburg Academy, and Phillips Academy. He also enrolled in French, English, and Art literary courses in the United States.
In 1928, he fully took up photography as his career. In 1930, his three photographs were published in the poetry book “The Bridge.” The following year, he received sponsorships to make a photo series of several Victorian houses in Boston. In the 1930s, his works attracted many audiences and received much international recognition.
Between 1935 and 1936, thus during the “Great Depression” years in America, he was employed by the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Evans documented the effects of the Great Depression for the FSA, and these works earned wide accolades across America.
Most of his permanent collections have been kept in the “George Eastman Museum” and the “Metropolitan Museum of Art.”
He died aged 71 in his home at New Haven, Connecticut, on April 10, 1975.
