Let Us Now Praise Famous Men

Three Tenant Families


A landmark work ofAmerican photojournalism “renowned for its fusion of social conscience andartistic radicality” (New York Times)

In the summer of 1936, James Agee and Walker Evans set outon assignment for Fortune magazine to explore the daily lives ofsharecroppers in the South. Their journey would prove an extraordinarycollaboration and a watershed literary event when Let Us NowPraise Famous Men was first published in 1941 to enormous critical acclaim. Thisunsparing record of place, of the people who shaped the land, and the rhythm oftheir lives is intensely moving and unrelentingly honest, and today—recognizedby the New York Public Library as one of the most influential books of thetwentieth century—it stands as a poetic tract of its time.

With a sixty-four-page photographic prologue featuring archivalreproductions of Evans’ classic images, this book offers readers a window intoa remarkable slice of American history.
