I was sent some photos by a friend on email today, they were rather beautiful still seaside landscapes. They reminded me, somehow, of the great American photographer who is so associated with depression shots, though there is more than that to his repertoire as this decent site here shows. I first came across him at art school when we were looking at the classic Let Us Now Praise Famous Men written by James Agee with the dual intentions of informing and innovating, and illustrated by Evans’ black and white pictures. I was very taken with it; I feel like collaborating on a book like that now.
