Publisher's Description
Known internationally as the ‘doyenne’ of Australian photography, Joyce Evans started her journey in art photography by opening Australia’s first photographic gallery and bookshop in Church Street, Melbourne in the late 70’s. It showcased the best of Australian and International photographers and became Australia’s most innovative gallery with an international reputation. At the gallery she exhibited works by Frank Hurley, Bill Henson, Henri Cartier-Bresson, David Moore, Max Dupain and many other renowned photographers.

Evans has had many solo exhibitions of both her landscapes and her portraits throughout Australia and Europe and her photographs are held in many collections. She has spent 10 years documenting Australia for the National Library, which holds over 350 of her images. Evans is a two time recipient of the IAPP Print of the Year Award and has also won the Hassleblad Masters.

Her approach to landscape and to people is one of intense scrutiny. She has that special ability to record her subjects in a particularly intimate way – whether a mother and child, a silent sunset or a shadow in an empty street – that lifts the image out of the passing moment and into a realm that is unchanging. Photo edited by Helen Frajman, M.33.
