Walker Evans

  • James Agee in 1936

    Now an associate editor of FORTUNE, WALKER EVANS has claim to the double distinction of writer and photographer. In 1936 Mr. Evans was a roving photographer for the New Deal government, and his sharp,telling photographs complemented perfectly JamesAgee’s text for LET us NOW PRAISE FAMOUS MEN.This extraordinary study of Southern tenant families will be republished this fall by Houghton Mifflin Company.
