Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans: photographing America 1929-1947
Walker Evans (1903-1975) and Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) belonged to the same generation and shared an insatiable intellectual curiosity. This book draws a parallel between the photographs on America made by Evans and Cartier-Bresson in the period from 1928 to 1948. Evans was well-established, had already published Let Us Now Praise Famous Men with James Agee, and was at work on Many Are Called. Cartier-Bresson, on the other hand, was just beginning his new career as a photographer. Although they both approached their work as a form of social criticism, imbued with references to literature and painting, their practices were always quite distinct.
