Description: Best known for his influential black-and-white photographs of mid-century American vernacular architecture and signage – as well as the powerful photographs he made in the southern U.S. during his short stint with the Farm Security Administration – Evans began making color pictures with the Polaroid SX-70 camera in 1972 and used it for two years, creating more than 2,400 images. His lifelong love of text, signs, home-made objects, and things that bear evidence of time or heavy use are evident in this piece.
