The Whispers Series is a photographic exploration of architectural earthquake survivors.  At 5:12 am, April 18, 1906, the ground beneath San Francisco began to shake.  The result was devastation on a massive scale, with a loss of life that is still being debated today.  But among the survivors were a handful of homes, businesses, and government buildings.  As I spend time at these amazing structures, I always wish their walls could talk.  I have no doubt that their stories of life and death, joy and pain, celebration and tribute would fascinate us all as much as their beauty does.

"Michael Evans is a master of light, but you'd expect that from a fine photographer. What makes his work amazing, though, is the sense of balance, the perfect poise in every shot, and above all, an understanding of quiet, which is as much a quality in the visual arts as it is in any other. A lion, a gargoyle, a door, a window -- all come to life in his black and whites. They breathe, and they pulse with a very special intelligence."  
Howard W. French - author, photographer
