Herefordshire Life Through a Lens

Herefordshire Life through a Lens is a three-year media and oral history project that ran from April 2017 until April 2020 about the social history of Herefordshire, inspired by the extensive photographic archive from the Derek Evans Studio.

“Without question, Derek Evans was a fine and accomplished photographer. He was clearly passionate about Hereford and the region. His image repertoire was affectionate, humanist, liberal and well-crafted”

The project was led by Catcher Media Social CIC, a not-for-profit company in partnership with Herefordshire Council’s Libraries, Archive and Learning and Achievement Services. Funded by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and by The Elmley Foundation, The Beaumont Trust, Wye Valley Brewery, Ledbury, Leominster and Ross-on-Wye Town Councils and crowd-fund supporters.
