Photographer - Walker Evans

Walker Evans Negro church, South Carolina, 1936

First came across Walker Evans preparing for a presentation at the Victoria and Albert and more recently researching for a forthcoming article on Appropriation Art. 

He has a very simple direct style his photographs are unromantic, factual - documentary - which I like very much as the photographs ask questions while maintaining an aura.

I have unwittingly (more of this when I discuss Appropriation Art) used this documentary style myself.....
