This richly illustrated book focuses on the life and work of British photographer Frederick H. Evans (1853–1943). Initially a bookseller in London, Evans began pursuing photography in the 1880s. His platinum prints of medieval cathedrals in England and France are among the most renowned architectural images in photographic history. He explored these stone monuments with a particular interest in spirituality and symbolism. Evans was a member of the Linked Ring, an association of photographers formed in England in 1892 to promote photography as a fine art.
Despite Evans’s important contribution to the field of photography, this is the first significant publication of his work since 1992.
