Let Us Now Praise Famous Men

Houghton Mifflin 1988

HN 79 .A4 A535 1988b

In 1936 writer James Agee and photographer Walker Evans set off on assignment for Fortune magazine to explore the daily lives of sharecroppers in the South. This book is a documentary of their time spent with three different families. Many of Evan’s images are familiar icons of agricultural life during the era. While not specific to Appalachia, where bluegrass was born, the vision of rural poverty presented in this work can provide a sense of the general context from which the form developed.
Ailey, Alvin Jr. and A. Peter Bailey
