Inspiration- Walker Evans was a Fox

This is a self-portrait of the FSA photographer Walker Evans, taken when he was in his late 20's or early 30's. I love that he has his tie tucked into his buttons, as if it was getting in his way. Also, who knew that he was such a dreamboat?

I have been thinking a lot lately about the long history of the self-portrait (this comes up in my adament defense of the selfie, which gets more slack than it deserves), and in poking around, I found this one which is beautiful in a way instagram is still trying to emulate. Just thought you might like to see it.
