Photo essays can be sequential in nature, intended to be viewed in a particular order, or they may consist of non-ordered photographs which may be viewed all at once or in an order chosen by the viewer.citation needed People who have undertaken photo essays include Bruce Davidson, W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, James Agee, David Alan Harvey, and Andre Kertesz.original research?
