This RPS Zoom meeting is in 2 parts: in the first half Dr Preston will speak to us about research & execution strategies (see below) and in the second half there will be an opportunity for up to 3 members to offer one of their ongoing projects for discussion and feedback from fellow members and the speaker.
Rivers, Trees, Journeys – Yan Wang Preston Dr Yan Wang Preston, will discuss research and execution strategies for long-term photographic projects. She will use two of her own projects as case studies: for Mother River (2011-2014), she photographed the entire 6,211km Yangtze River in China at precise 100km intervals. For Forest (2010-2017), she followed the adaptation journeys of transplanted old trees in new Chinese cities. Both projects have won major awards, shown internationally and published extensively. Dr Preston will focus on a holistic research approach termed as Deep Mapping, in which contextual and historical research, technical experiments and a bodily intervention within the landscape all contribute to generate new artistic insights.Dr Preston – Biog Dr Yan Wang Preston is a British-Chinese artist interested in landscape, ecology and identity. Her long-term projects, Mother River and Forest, won major awards including the 1st Prize, Professional Landscape, Sony World Photography Awards 2019. Both projects are published by Hatje Cantz in 2018. She holds a PhD in Photography from the University of Plymouth and lectures at the University of Huddersfield, UK.
Twickenham & Richmond Photographic Society invites you to their Virtual Exhibition:
After a one year gap due to the pandemic, Richmond & Twickenham Photographic Society’s popular annual exhibition will be going virtual this year, running on-line from Thursday 1 April to Thursday 20 May.
The show, which boasts over 300 images, is set in a 3D museum space utilising the Kunstmatrix platform, so visitors can explore the rooms independently or be guided around the exhibition. It’s free and can be accessed from a link on the society’s website: www.rtps.org.uk
Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in some stunning landscapes, beautiful wildlife and some thought provoking portraits and street scenes from a photographic society which is one of the largest and oldest in the country. Once again the work of GCSE and A level students at St. Catherine’s School for Girls in Twickenham will be going on display.
The society has around 120 members from beginners to professionals, meeting every Thursday between 8 and 10pm. New members are warmly welcome and should email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
The society’s annual exhibition is normally held at the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington and hopes to return there in 2022. And while no digital encounter can fully emulate the physical experience of visiting an exhibition, the virtual platform provided by Kunstmatrix, comes very close.
Our speaker will be Anna Fox. Our program for 2021 is following the development of a project: Concept, Research and Execution.
Behind the Image – the making of documentary photography projects
What happens behind the scenes in the life of a documentary photographer?
Where do ideas come from? How do projects develop? There are big stories behind the works of documentary photographers and Anna Fox will be exploring some of these in relation to her own work. This session is designed to get us all thinking about what it is to make a set of images work together to tell a story.
In the second half of our meeting we will have interactive discussion on our member’s work. We encourage members to present their projects at the meeting, whatever the stage of progress, from ideas, through work in progress, to completed projects.
Opportunities to enter printed images are few and far between just now, but the PAGB Masters of Print offers just that. This prestigious competition is open now and this is call to Club members to take part.
The competition is open to members of PAGB affiliated Clubs (such as Chichester Camera Club) and you can enter up to five images in any mix of the three categories, mono, colour and nature. Images can be printed at any size on A3 or 16 x 12 paper, with some restrictions on photographs that have been used in inter-club competitions in the past three years. You can find the full details and rules at http://www.thepagb.org.uk/competitions/pagb-masters-of-print/
Peter Rocchiccioli has kindly offered to co-ordinate entries – you’ll need to send your entries to Peter at Ludlow, Copse Lane, Hayling Island, Hants, PO11 0QA by 15th February and Peter will forward them to the PAGB. As the PAGB has postponed the deadline, prints now need to be with Peter by 22nd March.
Club members have had some good successes in recent years with Masters of Print, the featured successful image here is Jim Mundy’s Port in a Storm
The above is the invitation for Monday’s competition and we look forward to meeting members from Beckenham PS, Chichester CC, Molesey PC and Tandridge PS, together with our judge Ron Tear MPAGB ARPS PSA3 BPE4*, on screen.
Please remind your members that access will not be given to unidentifiable people (eg Mum’s ipad).
As we use breakout rooms during the break having your club initials in addition to your name would act as an ice-breaker, eg. Fred Smith MPC.
If you cannot add your club initials before joining please click on your image and use the change name option.
We have found using breakout rooms allows a small group to have a conversation which would otherwise be impossible, particularly with 5 clubs at the meeting.
The meeting will open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start and as we are anticipating a good attendance from all 5 clubs please assist our hosts and do not leave it to the last minute to join.
