Homework 5

Walker Evans photographs are very unique in my opinion.Here we have a photographer thinking outside the box and not taking staged photographs, but rather taken people pictures in their natural element with no warning.I find it interesting how so little has changed.In the photos seen here , you see people either reading papers, talking or starting off into the distance.When you compare that to today’s society it is almost the same.You still see the same kind of people who are wearing their taught a on their faces, you see the people who are reading their daily paper and to add on you see the young-ins who cannot stay out of their phone.The fact that Evans did not publish these photos as soon as he took them also shows the kind of artist he is.He took his time and years to observe every aspect of over 600 photos before he decided to publish.
