6-30th October Photographic Exhibition: Nina Borowsky at the Portsmouth Central Library

6-30th October Photographic Exhibition: Nina Borowsky at the Portsmouth Central Library – Peter Rocchiccioli thinks this is a really good and very contemporary exhibition for members to go and see. He truly recommends it.

The statement below goes with the images, not your simple club photography. Must be seen to be appreciated.

Nina Borowsky

I spent my childhood growing up amongst picturesque fields and mountains, which cultivated my passion for nature and moving image.

After a four-year degree at university in Theatre Production I worked as a television producer for nine years. Eventually when I moved to the south of England my growing interest in imagery led me to photography.

My work explores a dreamy and romanticized view of contemporary landscapes and the human interaction within, all through careful observation and minimal digital alteration. The images are captured like a moment that is flashing by in a film and captured as a still or the continuation of the film that is life.

Working in two different styles, the portraits search out the relationships people have with each other, themselves and their work in different setting and locations.

North Mundham – PDI Images

Dear members of the PDIs Advance group could you please support the Club North Mundham Exhibition by submitting up to 4 new images for the PDIs section. These can be uploaded at the normal site

Since we are using a HD TV to show the entries please note each image may be up to 1920×1080 pixels, sRGB. This is wider than our normal 1400×1050.

This is at no cost and it will be an opportunity to show your new work for all members and visitors.

As a bonus and incentive to you, all of the images will be retained by the selection committee for future consideration in the forthcoming external competitions.

Your support is appreciated and I thank you in advance for your input.
