OCTOBER 23

BOSTON VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURE AND WALKER EVANS, LINCOLN KIRSTEIN, JOHN WHEELWRIGHT


Stephen Jerome | Architectural and Social Historian

In 1931, the photographer Walker Evans—later famous for his collaboration with author James Agee documenting the effects of the Depression for the Farm Security Administration (FSA)—joined Lincoln Kirstein, his early promoter, and architect/poet John Brooks Wheelwright in a project to photograph 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 Stephen Jerome, architectural and social historian, for a slideshow about this rare archive of Victorian architecture and the three luminaries behind it.
