actual image size: 32cm x 25cm


Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of three little girls walking barefoot at the very edge of the water. A great example of the spontaneity of Sutcliffe's photography, he captures the girls unawares as they clutch at their skirts. Sutcliffe is best known for his naturalistic and spontaneous style of photography, especially his portrayals of Whitby's fishing community. He was a founder member of The Linked Ring Brotherhood and was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in 1941.
