WALKER EVANS: CUBA.
Edition: First printing.
Los Angeles: J. Paul Getty Museum, (2001) dj. Hardcover first edition - "In 1933, Walker Evans traveled to Cuba to take photographs for 'The Crime of Cuba',a book by the American journalist Carleton Beals. Beals's explicit goal was to expose the corruption of Cuban dictator Gerardo Machado and the long, torturous relationship between the United States and its island neighbor." But, as these photographs, focusing mostly on the people of Cuba, show Evan's artistic temperament was at odds with Beals's rhetoric. This book brings together more than sixty of these images from the Getty Museum's extensive holdings of the photographer's work with an essay by Andrei Codrescu. Introduction by Judith Keller. Large square format. 96 pp. ISBN: 0-89236-6176.
Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
