Description

Women wearing aprons with hands covered in gore, walking along a road in the coastal town of Whitby. Photographer Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) is best known for his turn-of-the-century portrayals of small sea-town fisherfolk and farmers. Although the photographic technology of the time dictated that his portraits had to be staged, he still managed to breathe an air of spontaneity into his work.
