Notes

Second edition. An important association copy bearing Evans's signed presentation inscription to the photographer Arnold Crane and with the recipient's ownership signature to the front pastedown. Crane was best known as a portrait photographer but his most important work was in the documentation of everyday life in America in the 1950s. In his later years he began the sizeable task of photographing his contemporary photographic colleagues including wonderful studies of Man Ray and Ansel Adams. One of the best assemblages of Evans's work ever printed, based on the landmark exhibition of the photographer's work held at MoMA in 1938.
