Book Description Getty Publications, Los Angeles, 2011. Softcover. Book Condition: New. 96 pages. Softcover. New book. CUBA. In 1933, Walker Evans traveled to Cuba to take photographs for The Crime of Cuba, a book by American journalist Carleton Beals. Beals's explicit goal was to expose the corruption of dictator Gerardo Machado and the torturous relationship between the United States and its island neighbor. Evans's photographs are fascinating both for their subject matter and the evidence they provide of his artistic development. This volume brings together more than sixty of these images all from the J. Paul Getty Museums extensive holdings of the photographers work. Codrescu's spirited text helps to provide a sense of the aesthetic and political forces that were shaping Evans's art in the early 1930s. He argues that the photographs are the work of a young artist whose temperament was distinctly at odds with Beals's impassioned rhetoric and shows that Evans was just beginning to combine his early, formalist aesthetic with the social concerns that would figure so prominently in his later work. Together, the images and the insightful essay provide a compelling study of a major artist at an important juncture in his career. Andrei Codrescu is a poet, novelist, essayist, and commentator for National Public Radio. He is the author of Ay, Cuba! (Picador, 1999) and the founder of Exquisite Corpse: A Journal of Letters and Life. Judith Keller is senior curator in the Department of Photographs at the Getty Museum and author of Walker Evans: The Getty Museum Collection (Getty Publications, 1995). "A beautiful and essential publication for those interested in Walker Evans, and an alluring and fascinating book for anyone interested in Cuba." - Black & White "Evans's pictures are lyrical observations of Havana's streets and people." - New York Times Book Review "Printed large in this album, [the pictures] all look marvelous." - Booklist "Andrei Codrescu is a knowledgeable guide, and it's easy, it's pleasurable, to lose oneself in Old Havana without stirring from the comforts of home." - Easy Reader "The photographs in Cuba reveal an empathy for the downtrodden that would be expressed most famously in Evans's chronicle of Depression America, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men." - Times Literary Supplement "Catches both the country and its American chronicler on the cusp of change." - Miami Herald (Key Words: Walker Evans, Photography, Judith Keller, Cuba, Andrei Codrescu). book.

Book Description J Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, 2001. Square quarto hardcover; orange/brown cloth boards with orange gilt upper board and spine titling, orange endpapers; 95pp., b&w plates. Minor wear; faint spotting to upper text block edges and mild toning to page edges. Otherwise fine in like dustwrapper now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. "Published to coincide with the J. Paul Getty Museum exhibition, 'A Revolutionary Project: Cuba from Walker Evans to Now,' Walker Evans' Cuba is a striking window into the eye of a future master. The work in Cuba is uneven. Some shots reveal the preoccupations and talent that would later make Evans a world-class artist. Others aren't much better than vacation snapshots. But for people who want to see how a photographic genius develops as well as those simply interested in Cuba's pre-revolutionary people and architecture, this is a valuable work. Walker Evans is a major figure of 20th Century photography, cited by many other giants as an influence. Henri Cartier-Bresson, for example, told Charlie Rose that Evans was one of his photographic 'fathers.' More than any other body of his work, the images Evans created during the Great Depression for the Farm Securities Administration cemented his reputation as a keen observer of people and their spaces. This series, taken a few years before the FSA work, is not as widely known. In 1933, Evans went to Cuba on assignment for the publisher of progressive crusader Carleton Beals's then-forthcoming book, The Crime of Cuba. He was to document the conditions under the dictator Gerardo Machado. Beals and his publisher likely wanted imagery wrought with emotion and designed to evoke outrage at the conditions of the poor. Evans, already somewhat of a non-conformist, went for something more subtle: storytelling that was more journalistic and less overtly opinionated than that of his colleagues. While in Cuba, Evans befriended Ernest Hemingway, and perhaps Hemingway's ability to artfully depict a moment or interaction with simple and unadorned prose inspired the young photographer. Evans is often credited with the ability to simply record what appeared in his viewfinder in an objective and unembellished way. These early pictures indicate that Evan's 'simplicity' is smokescreen for a complex vision. It's no easy feat to compose a scene in a graphically pleasing way while capturing a poignant moment or a richly informative living space. The work of a rare talent is evident in his ability to do so in a manner that, upon first glance, seems hardly more than straightforward documentation, but that continues to feel fresh and new upon repeated viewing. For Walker Evans fans, or for anyone who wants to see a major photographer capturing Cuba at very specific place and time, Walker Evans Cuba is a fascinating and engaging book." - Adam Koplan.
