Event Description

Evans (British, 1853-1943) began pursuing photography in the mid 1880s, focusing on architecture, specifically medieval cathedrals in England and France. His images of York Minster and Ely Cathedral are among the most renowned architectural photographs in the history of photography. He attempted to capture "a record of an emotion" by invoking the potent symbolism of these awe-inspiring spaces. The exhibition will also include rarely seen landscapes of the English countryside and intimate portraits of family and friends, including George Bernard Shaw and Aubrey Beardsley.

This exhibition has been organised by the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles.
