Biography: Architecture photographer Frederick H. Evans


Frederick H. Evans (26 June 1853, London – 24 June 1943, London) was a British photographer best known for his platinum prints of architectural interiors of English and French cathedrals. Before devoting his time solely to the art of photography, Evans owned a small bookshop in London where many artists and writers, including George Bernard Shaw and Aubrey Beardsley, came together. Frederick Evans did take some portraits of these friends, but his photographic mastery can be found in his images of English and French cathedrals. Frederick Evans worked tirelessly to use the effects of light and shade to create images with harmonized values and he achieved these masterful works of art without manipulating the negative or the print.
