    Despite his almost sole focus on the American experience, a major retrospective of photographer Walker Evans’ work at the Centre Pompidou in Paris represents, in a strange way, a kind of homecoming for the trailblazing documentary photographer. That’s partly because of the lingering influence of a trip Evans took to France in 1926–1927 to immerse himself in French literature and culture.

    In his new book The Orange Balloon Dog — a title inspired by the stainless-steel sculpture Balloon Dog (Orange) by Jeff Koons — author Don Thompson explores the recent landscape of art speculation, from Qatar to Los Angeles. Taking the pulse of a phenomenon that is part Wild West and part South Sea Bubble, Thompson adopts an almost Cassandra-like approach to today’s art market.
