Middleton Evans has devoted much of his 25-year career to documenting the many faces of Maryland, including Chesapeake Bay watermen, cities and towns, farm life, festivals and equestrian sports.
Wildlife photography has become a keen interest, especially our feathered friends in recent years.
Evans’ self published books include Maryland in Focus, Baltimore, Maryland’s Great Outdoors, and Bodhi: The All American Lodge Dog. Rhapsody in Blue: A Celebration of North American Waterbirds was released by Ravenwood Press in 2007.
Middleton Evans believes that beautiful photographs are nourishment for the soul, connecting us to God in mystical ways. His lens seeks the Divine essence of all subjects, as all Created beings bare the signature of the Creator.
