Mix equal parts of Pete Turner, Alex Webb, and Gary Winogrand and you’ll get a sense of Walker’s photos, but that makes them sound
derivative, and they’re not. Taken in New York and other big cities, they compress urban chaos (no telephoto needed by Walker’s wandering eye) into supersaturated, often whimsical collages of pedestrians, architecture and signage.
