“The full and the felt”


East Sierras, CA

Walker Evans was a photographer noted for his straightforward, but touching portrayals of rural people and places. Best known is the classic “Let Us Now Praise Famous Men,” about sharecroppers during the Great Depression with Evans’ photos and the writing of James Agee. Evans once said: “…the matter of art in photography…is the capture and projection of the delights of seeing; it is the observation of the full and felt.”

    This is beautiful, Susan. Thank you for this reminder of the power and beauty of a well-conceived (and lucky) photograph.

I am an analog photographer, but I like to dialog. Please comment!
