Space and Light - Ely Cathedral

by Iain Gilmour January. 04, 2020 269 views

Some of the earliest and most famous photographs of Ely Cathedral are those of Frederick H. Evans. He was profoundly dedicated to pure photography, not altering the printing of negatives for aesthetic effects; rather using his ability to capture an image at the most telling moment of light and shadow. In keeping, these images are all ACROS film simulation jpegs with no further processing.

The spaces inside cathedrals are vast and an intrinsic part of both their architectural design and function. Capturing them in a two dimensional medium is immensly challenging, space is hard to see, and I find that the third dimension is hinted at most strongly by light.
