British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Publication: Steel–Oil–Steam by EVANS+HULF is now available

Taken by Evans+Hulf between 2016 and 2020 using a giant 15 x 12 inch camera made by J T Chapman of Manchester in the 1880s, the photographs explore the engineering that underpins a heritage steam railway and show the people who keep everything working. The images have an unusual intensity and timeless quality, which is faithfully preserved in the 67 full-page reproductions, printed in four colour B&W to match the tonal characteristics of the originals.

Published by Samson Press, 84pp 215x215mm, price £24.00 + p&p, Steel–Oil–Steam is available through the Evans+Hulf website at, where extracts from the book can also be seen, or to order from
