EDITORS COMMENTS
ALABAMA: BOOTBLACKS, 1935. A glimpse into the vibrant African American community in Selma, Alabama during the Great Depression. This powerful photograph by Walker Evans captures a group of hardworking bootblacks seated outside a shoeshop on a bustling street in December 1935. In this snapshot of daily life, these men proudly showcase their trade as they provide essential services to the local residents. Their presence is a testament to their resilience and determination amidst challenging times. The worn storefront behind them serves as a reminder of the economic struggles faced by many during this era. The image also offers glimpses into other aspects of rural Alabama life at that time. An old automobile parked nearby hints at changing transportation trends, while an adorable dog curiously observes the scene from its spot on the sidewalk. Evans' skillful composition and attention to detail bring this historical moment alive for viewers today. Through his lens, we are transported back to an early chapter in American history when communities relied on one another for support and survival. This photograph stands as a tribute not only to these individual workers but also to all those who persevered through adversity during the Great Depression. It reminds us of our shared humanity and inspires reflection on how far we have come since then.
