Click to preview American Photographs photo book

Walker Evans' "American Photographs" is considered by many to be one of the most important photobooks ever published. Made on the occasion of his one-man show at the Museum of Modern Art in 1938 – the first MoMA exhibition devoted to the work of a single photographer – the book went on to influence generations of photographers.
This remake of a classic explores the possibility that in the past decades, almost everything has been photographed and that in the photographic universe anything we wish to see is readily available to us. Drawing on the constantly growing resource of online photo hosting sites and using the original captions of Evans' celebrated photographs as search terms, this new edition of "American Photographs" offers a modern equivalent of Evans' masterpiece, compiled entirely of found photographs and created with the help of a search engine instead of a camera.
