Light and Space – Ely Cathedral

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 are ACROS film simulation jpegs shot with my FujiFilm X-PRO2 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.
