Walker Evans: The Magazine Work
Lipowa 4, Krakow
15.05 - 15.06.2014
In many cases, he not only took the photographs but also wrote the accompanying text, as well as selecting the photos to be printed and designing their page layout. Walker Evans’s photographic essays are testimony to the way he worked and earned a living, how he connected with audiences who would never go to a museum or art gallery, and at the same time how he protected his independence in these kinds of project. Campany’s project is an original study of the artist’s biography, as well as an example of an alternative method of pursing history of art by using a visual narrative.
David Campany writes, curates exhibitions, makes art, and teaches at the University of Westminster. His latest books are Gasoline (MACK, 2013) and Walker Evans: The Magazine Work (Steidl, 2014).
