Biography

Photographer Evelyn Hofer is best known for her sensitive portraiture and meticulous shots of architecture and interiors. Departing from the more popular documentary styles of her time, Hofer patiently composed her images, spending significant time arranging interior scenes and searching for an “inside value, some interior respect” in her subjects. Hofer also collaborated with authors like Mary McCarthy and V.S. Pritchett on several travel books, including city-specific publications like London Perceived (1962), Dublin: A Portrait (1967), and The Evidence of Washington (1966).
