After the American Century

2008 marked the 70th anniversary of the publication of Walker Evans’ landmark book, American Photographs, a book that has been a resource and a prompt for me, as for generations of other photographers.  Following what I receive as Evans’ core challenge—to create a document of one’s own time as a form of visual literature—After the American Century assesses the zeitgeist of the post-September 11th environment, exploring the fragile prosperity and worn innocence of American civilization in photographs made in many locations across the United States over the past decade.
