Walker Evans was a "Punk Rock" photographic visionary.

"In stylistic terms, Evan's photography is a series of negations. It is unenbellished, unvarnished and unpretentious. It eschews any atmospheric effects and most of the niceties of traditional composition. Often, in photographs of buildings as well as portraits, the subject is seen head on, in the hard light of midday sun, directly at eye level. As a result, Evan's subjects achieve a clarity, solidity and presence. While plainly temporal, they appear as if they existed outside of time."
