Walker Evans and Boston’s Victorian Beauties

The photographer Walker Evans is famous for his collaboration with author James Agee documenting the effects of the Depression. In 1931, Evans joined Lincoln Kerstein, his early patron, and architect/poet John Brooks Wheelwright in a project to photograph Boston-area Victorian architecture for a book Wheelwright was writing on this subject. Many of the resulting iconic images are in the permanent collections of museums. Join a historical architect and social historian (as well as a former tour guide for the Gibson House, which will be discussed) for a slideshow about this rare archive of Victorian architecture and the three luminaries behind it.
