From Walker Evans to Roger Ballen

“What I
believe is really good in the so-called documentary approach to
photography is the addition of lyricism….[this quality] is
usually produced unconsciously and even unintentionally and accidentally
by the cameraman.”

-Walker Evans,
lecture, Yale University, 1964


Walker Evans, from Now Let Us Praise Famous Men, 1941

  1. Lyricism is just the right word. I like these two artists together.
