An American photographer best known for his work for the Farm Security Administration documenting the effects of the Great Depression. Much of Evans' work from the FSA period uses the large-format 8x10 in view camera, which when used directly in front of a subject would create the appearance of a dispassionate viewpoint. In 1966, Message From The Interior set a new standard for photographic reproduction and presentation. The twelve large sheet-fed gravure images, in their resplendent velvet-black ink, are a historical testament to the genius of American's greatest photographer. The photographs were taken between 1931 and 1962, from Maine to Alabama. The profound afterword by John Szarkowski is a milestone of appreciation for Evans's work.
