Walker Evans: Depth of Field

I was fortunate to see an exhibition of the American photographer Walker Evans at the Vancouver Art Gallery. He was a photojournalist best known for his work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) documenting the effects of the Great Depression. Much of Evans’s work from the FSA period uses the large format, 8 x 10 inch camera. Many of his works are in the permanent collections of museums. I really enjoyed looking at some of his cameras and street photography which included photos of store signs. I would recommend seeing this exhibition which ends on January 22nd.
