This photograph depicts a stone grotesque from Ely Cathedral. The shadows are pronounced in the print, creating a notable chiaroscuro. The grotesque is cropped so that there is more space at the bottom of the frame, a technique that Evans helped develop in regards to photographic display methods. On the right side of the image there is a large crack in the stone wall that extends from the mouth of the sculpture to the bottom of the frame.Physical Description
