"I bought my first photograph in 1972, just two years before this Walker Evans photograph was printed. Visionary publishers like Double Elephant Press were revisiting the early work of some of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. Walker Evans: Selected Photographs from 1974 featured many of Evans’s most important images from the 1930s, including this iconic storefront of a photographer’s studio window. Since the beginning of the photography market in the 1970s, portfolio prints have offered a great way to build a collection." - Michael Shapiro
