5.0 out of 5 stars Dont pass it over as quaint and rural..., 27 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Herefordshire Life (Archive Photographs) (Paperback)
Evans' photography ostensibly seems a bit quaint, chocolate boxy and perhaps over-nostalgic when presented in this way, but stick with it because all is not as it seems. This collection is a masterful marriage of photojournalism, an artistic eye for lighting and a fondness and passion for his home-county, herefordshire. The photos of the cattle markets are especially beautiful. I think what may put many people off this book is the way in which it seems to be praising an england we see far too much of in programmes like 'heartbeat', but the crux of the matter is that many aspects of the area Evans' comes from remain unchanged... the cattle market is still held every wednesday, and the generation of people who were alive during the time the photographs were taken still live very much the same life. Perhaps then it is a book that will primarily interest those who have connections with the area/people of the area, but should not be passed over as anything other than a real, valid and yet beautiful, interpretation of rural england.
