A Record of Emotion: The Photographs of Frederick H. Evans
February 2-June 6, 2010
Frederick H. Evans (English, 1853-1943) began pursuing photography in the late 1880s. Focusing on architecture, he paid particular attention to medieval cathedrals in England and France. His images of York Minster and Ely Cathedral are among the most renowned architectural renderings in the history of photography. He attempted to capture what he called "a record of emotion," by invoking the potent symbolism of these awe-inspiring spaces. These photographs and other cathedral subjects are displayed alongside rarely seen landscapes of the English countryside and intimate portraits of the artist’s family and friends, including writer George Bernard Shaw and artist Aubrey Beardsley.
