2000 ; 80 Pages ; 8 MB
"American photographer Walker Evans (1903–1975) is best known for his portraits of Depression-era America, a number of which were included in Let Us Now Praise Famous Men (1941), his famous collaboration with writer James Agee. In 1942, at the behest of retired journalist Karl Bickel, Evans journeyed to Sarasota to take photographs for The Mangrove Coast, a book Bickel was writing about the long and colorful history of Florida’s Gulf Coast.
Accompanying the fifty-two images in Walker Evans: Florida is novelist Robert Plunket’s wry account of the human and geographic landscape of Florida."
