Frederick Evans (1853 - 1943)
Frederick Henry Evans is considered one of England’s finest photographers of medieval cathedrals. He is also known for his delicate woodland studies and his portraits. Evans’ masterly platinum prints reveal his sensitive yet rigorous approach to light and composition. Defying the conventions of Pictorialism that prevailed at the time, he advocated a style of photography with minimal alteration of the image.
