Inspired By…

…Walker Evans’ Portrait of Lucille, Alabama 1936.

Walker Evans, like his peer Dorothea Lange, spent the Depression photographing the desperate plight of rural farmers. His image of ten year old Lucille makes this all the more poignant. Five years after Evans met Lucille, she was married, pregnant and still in the cotton field. At thirty she was a grandmother. In 1971, the year Evans had a retrospective at the Modern Museum of Modern Art, Lucille died. Despite the sad outcome of Lucille’s life, her 1936 portrait radiates youthful optimism and hope.
