A Death in the Family

A Death in the Family

Vintage Books, New York, New York, 1998

Description

I always assumed that this photograph was taken by Walker Evans. How fitting it would be, then, to reunite Walker Evans with his literary collaborator, James Agee. As it turned out, the photograph was actually taken by a lesser known WPA photographer named John Vachon. At least it looks like a Walker Evans.
