Item Details
Description
EVANS, FREDERICK H. (1853-1943)
"Bourges Cathedral, South Porch." Platinum print, 10 3/4x6 1/4 inches (27.5x15.8 cm.), tipped to the original mount with Evans's hand-ruled pencil and watercolor margin, and his signature and title, in pencil, on mount recto. 1906

Evans's most notable artistic achievements are his photographs of cathedrals, masterworks of light and shadow that beautifully employ the platinum technique. He sometimes spent as much as two weeks living in a cathedral studying the way natural light defined forms, and searching for relationships between light and dark.
The ghost-like shadow in the foreground of this image perhaps reflects Evans's intent to combine architectural and symbolic elements to capture the soul of the stone. He wrote that, "The structural qualities of a Gothic cathedral are very closely allied to those organic principles which underlie the growth or cohesion of living things."
