Frederick Evans (1853-1943) was a London bookseller and print collector who was described by George Bernard Shaw in 1901 as "the most artistic of photographers." He took up photography in the early 1880s, receiving the Photographic Society's Medal of Honor in 1887 for his photomicrographs. From 1890 until the world war, his reputation grew to international acclaim for his interiors of cathedrals in England and France. He was a member of the Linked Ring and exhibited widely. He is also known for portraits of many of his literary and artistic friends.
