Walker Evan’s Subway Portraits

You can tell Evans main goal was to get a real human expression. To get a look of real emotion. How people are truly feeling and how they would look during a train ride. He would have never gotten the pictures he took, if the people knew he was taking them. So it was a good idea that they didn’t know. The expression people had back then are similar to what we see today. The only difference is now a days, we have technology to entertain ourselves with. Today not everyone looks so bored because we have cellphones, ipads, ipods, e-readers, etc., to enjoy using while on the train. Those technologies change peoples expressions, making look like their enjoying their ride, instead or being looking bored.

    Whats funny is that this is pretty much exactly what I said before in the earlier Walker Evan subway portraits post. Obviously I agree %100 percent because I believe Evans was a creative person with a very unique idea. Bottom line his photographs and as well as the way he took were pure genius.
