James Thrall Soby embraced the
camera in 1933. Lincoln Kirstein arranged for Walker Evans to
tutor Soby in his Connecticut home and he quickly became an
accomplished photographer. Soby and Evans spent time
traveling together through out the United States. During these
trips as well as others, Soby photographed the architecture in
small towns as well as famous artists who he knew personally.
He later became a respected art collector and an influential
scholar and critic. In addition, he was a curator and trustee at
the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and, during the 1940's, at
the Museum of Modern Art.
