Public Talk by Steven Evans, Saturday April 25
Drawn from the Steven Evans Collection, Seeking Solace celebrates the work of English photographer Francis Bedford (1816–1894), whose work concentrated on the picturesque landscapes and ecclesiastical ruins found in the British countryside, as well as impressive cathedral architecture. These subjects suited the tastes of Victorian society, which sought solace in nature, away from over-crowded and unhealthy urban centres. The exhibition is accompanied by a modest publication.
