Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Frederick Evans at the National Media Museum

Frederick H. Evans (June 26, 1853 – June 24, 1943) was a noted British photographer, best known for his architectural subjects, particularly images of English and French cathedrals. He started life as a bookseller, but retired in 1898 to become a full-time photographer, when he adopted the platinotype technique for his photography.

For those BPH bloggers who are fans of his work, but can't make it to the special exhibition put together by the J Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles till June, no fear as the National Media Museum will play host to this same exhibition later in the year, just up (or down!) the road in Bradford (please refer to 'Event' section for more info).
