In 1936, Walker Evans photographed the Burroughs, a family of sharecroppers in Depression-era Alabama. In 1979, Sherrie Levine photographed reproductions of Walker Evans' photographs. In 2001, Michael Mandiberg scanned these photographs and published them on AfterWalkerEvans.com and AfterSherrieLevine.com, virtual galleries designed to facilitate the dissemination of these images.

In 1936, Walker Evans photographed the Burroughs, a family of sharecroppers in Depression era Alabama. In 1979, Sherrie Levine rephotographed Walker Evans' photographs from the monograph "First and Last." In 2001, I scanned these same photographs, publishing them on the Web sites AfterWalkerEvans.com and AfterSherrieLevine.com - virtual galleries designed to facilitate the dissemination of these images as part of a commentary on how we arrive at information in this burgeoning digital age.
