Evelyn Radnai, Event to Event Photography
It is with deep sadness that we learned our great friend photographer Evelyn Radnai lost her battle with cancer on 17th January in West Suffolk Hospital.
A team of her friends supported her final days as she had no family in the UK. Liz Harcombe was close to Evelyn for many years. "She loved sharing in our sport and meeting all the people involved. I have benefitted from her calm life wisdom many times. She was such a talent behind the lens after an incredible and intrepid life which she left with her inimitable no fuss approach."
Whatever the weather, Evelyn would be there at driving events, indoors and out. She was a professional perfectionist with a unique eye for capturing the best shots. She made her equine subjects look magical, as though they might leap out of the photo at any moment. She was generous and dedicated, knew exactly where she wanted to take the best photographs from - and was always right. Her remarkable photos were always in demand for Carriage Driving magazine and were invaluable in promoting the sport in the press and online. She was a firm friend to many in the driving world and has left countless golden memories of horses and friends in her brilliant beautiful photographs.
