In 1935, Walker Evans began working on ‘Let Us Now Praise Famous Men’ in collaboration with the writer James Agee.  In 1938, Evans’ first major exhibition, ‘Walker Evans: American Photographs’ opened at Museum Of Modern Art's temporary underground gallery in Rockefeller Center, New York.  In 1968, Evans became a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Letters; and in 1973, he received a Grant from the Mark Rothko Foundation.  In 1973, Evans also bought and used an SX-70 Polaroid color camera.

These photographs were taken in 1973-74.
