homework #2

Walker Evans displays his work in a very unique way. I find it very fascinating, the way he was able to capture the image of a person on the subway.He was using his clothing to cover up parts that won’t make others suspicious of what he was up to, so nobody could notice him. This allowed him to catch a unique and real image of a person on the subway without them knowing they will become a piece of art. Now in days, there are so many other things to do on the subway other than stare at one another so I find it very interesting that Walker Evans came up with the idea to photograph everyday people during their everyday life.  I think Evans’ portraits showed how the country really was. It almost gives a sense of equality/unity on how everybody’s expressions are so similar.
