Descripción Roaring Brook, New Milford, CT, 2007. Hardcover. Condición: New. First Edition, 1st printing. First edition first printing of this 64 page hardcover with dustjacket, brand new, dustjacket lightly rubbed. Illustrations of photos throughout in black & white. Black marker dot at base of book (outer edge of textblock) indicates that this was a publisher's remainder. Digital image available upon request. 'From Booklist: Although there are biographies about Depression-era photographers, such as Elizabeth Partridge's I^ Restless Spirit: The Life and Work of Dorothea Lange (1998) and George Sullivan's I^ Berenice Abbott (2006), few books about Walker Evans exist for the YA audience. Nau fills this gap, amplifying information about Evans' life and philosophy with more than 50 richly reproduced photos. A college dropout, Evans embraced photography as a means of elevating the everyday stuff of life to the realm of art, whether in black-and-white images of subway riders and suffering sharecroppers or the eclectic color Polaroids that comprised his later work. Nau's brisk, expository treatment lacks the copious anecdotes about personal struggles and technical achievements that enliven the best artists' biographies. But shutterbugs, including those above and below the suggested age range, will find inspiration in Evans' uncompromising images--particularly the stark, quiet scenes from the seminal I^ Let Us Now Praise Famous Men (1941), created with James Agee--and may wish to move on to works suggested in Nau's well-rounded bibliography. A time line and source notes are appended. Jennifer Mattson'. Nº de ref. del artículo: 44559
