Summary
"Commissioned in 1941 by writer Karl Bickel, Walker Evans traveled to Florida to take the photographs that were published a year later in Bickel's The Mangrove Coast. These photographs constitute a little-known chapter in Evans's long career. Pelicans, trailer homes, dancing circus elephants from the Ringling Bros. winter quarters in Sarasota - the imagery Evans found in Florida was far removed from the Depression-era America with which this master photographer is so often associated." "Walker Evans: Florida brings together fifty-four of Evans's photographs of Florida, accompanied by an essay by novelist Robert Plunket, who lives in Sarasota. Plunket's wry account of the human and geographic landscape of Florida provides a superb counterpoint to Evans's photographs, revealing a side of Evans's career that may come as something of a surprise to many of his admirers."--BOOK JACKET.
