13th Annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest
About Brad Evans
Evans was walking down New York's Madison Avenue when he spotted
a woman cradling a child in front of Gucci's window mannequin.
Wordlessly, he immortalized the scene.
According to Evans, the photograph is not meant to convey a social message.
"I just thought it was a nice contrast," he said. Though he does not
know the relation of the woman to the child, he said that adds to the photo's
intrigue. "She could be a grandmother, a nanny, a mother. There's a
lot of speculation."
Evans, 51 anda lifelong Bay Area resident, got interested in
photography more than two years ago while looking through a book
of street photographer
Winogrand's work. Now, he takes thousands of pictures and considers himself
an urban photographer. "I love seeing people," he said. "It's
a real release."
