Walker Evans Goes Digital

More than 30 years after his death, revered photojournalist Walker Evans has moved into the digital realm. In a deceptively benign exhibition of his work at the UBS Gallery (circumnavigating the lobby of the UBS building at 1285 Ave. of the Americas), gelatin silver prints of Evans's 1935 and '36 photos live alongside what could be considered controversial contemporary prints from the same negatives--reproduced digitally.
