Artist Research – Walker Evans.



Walker Evans takes photographs of what he sees when he travels around America. This photo is taken outside a coffee shop looking in at the people inside and the people expressions. This photo was taken in the 1929 in New York and is Titled ‘Lunchroom Window‘.  The photo suggests that everyone in cities has their own little world and nothing is kept a secret. It symbolises this by having people sat in the window with Evans taking the photo of them. We could also interpret it as everyone has their own emotions and everyone thinks different. For example in the photo every person is pulling a different face and this shows how people react different to the same things. The photo is taken in Sepia Style as this was the type of camera they had back in 1929. I like the refection of the window as it adds depth and make it more interesting as you can faintly see what happing in the street behind. The photo makes me feel inquisitive  as i want to know what they are looking at.
