Walker Evans was more than a photographer. He delved into the psyche of America:
the expectations and realities, the roles we inhabit, the unspoken rules we live by,
the forces of habit, conformity, capitalism, and consumerism. In short, he held up
a mirror to ourselves and anyone who would follow us.
Hats off to Walker.
