“It is the particularization of the universal that is important… It is the unique field of the artist and Evans is an artist. It is ourselves we see, ourselves lifted from a parochial setting. We see what we have not heretofore realized, ourselves made worthy in our anonymity” (William Carlos Williams). With an afterword by John Szarkowski.
