Subject matter
Taken as part of Walker Evans's project to document Antebellum architecture in the South, this photograph depicts a large building in Augusta, Georgia. The rectangular structure is fronted by a classical portico and topped by a small dome. The distance between the subject and the photographer's vantage point is underscored. The viewer is at a remove, separated by a barren plot of land, sparsely populated by leafless trees and a low wall that surrounds the edifice.
