Juliet Evans photographs street scenes, people, and interiors with the sharpest lines, the inkiest darks, and the creamiest lights possible, somehow creating hyper-realist photographs with her crisp, all-seeing images. Working almost exclusively in digital, Evans plays to the strengths of her medium. Particularly in her black and white images, precision and contrast are expertly taken advantage of with her lens. With these two powerful elements, Evans has developed her unique artistic language.
Like the best photographers, Evans examines reality so closely that it gets turned upside down and becomes no longer familiar to us. Harsh city lights become beautiful stars hovering over Central Park. A staircase seems to loom out of the shadows, at once ominous and exciting. Evans is particularly interested in the patterns that shadows create, which transform everyday objects and imbue every expression with mystery.
Evans was born in London, England and today lives near Bournemouth. Her work has been published in the Royal Photographic Society’s DIGIT magazine and International Contemporary Artists Vol. X.
