Here is a message from Sue Nash announced at our last meeting:
Just a gentle reminder that if any of you are like me and have several attempts at printing your photos I would be interested in your ‘seconds’. I would like to do some montages for the walls of the care home where my Dad is but also to provide some boxes of interest for the residents to look through.
I am interested in all genres:
Landscapes and places of interest – please put the name of the view on the back if you can.
Not portraits unless they are of famous people which of course would be very welcomed – again names on the backs will help with my memory!
Of most interest would be any ‘revival’ photos that you may have taken at Goodwood or the Birmingham development weekend.
I will leave the box out most weeks and thank you again
Events next week not to miss: Monday: PAGB group, Tuesday: Print group, Wednesday: Lighting Workshop with Reg Wilson, Thursday: Beginners, Intermediate Print competition, Friday and Saturday: Tangmere Christmas Tree lighting and Christmas Fair.
On Thursday Viveca Koh FRPS moved us with a real treat of richly coloured and textured work full of meaning. The quote from Parr and Badger’s “History of Photobooks” writing about a Norwegian photographer, Dag Alveng’s book “Asylum” is spot on about Viveca’s derelict asylum photos. “Using a square format camera – the least dynamic yet most intense and monumental of photographic formats – the photographer documents the walls, the furniture, equipment and other objects to be found in the kind of place where we incarcerate(d) people.”
is a must for further inspiration and a strong justification to ask her again to our club.
She is giving a different talk to Bognor Regis Camera Club on Tuesday.
We also congratulated Sheila Tester who won a PAGB Gold Medal in the Nature Print Section at the 41st Smethwick International Exhibition of Photography and the other honours gained by George Atkins and John Howes detailed in a separate news item.
First Tuesday in the month as always is Print Group. We’ll be looking at different papers and the difference they make to images, some images from the archives, and with the 17th December deadline for the Advanced Print Competition looming, no doubt some work being considered for that. Bring your prints for discussion, whether they are finished or in progress or just come along to see what the group is about.
7.30pm in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre – all Club Members and visitors welcome!
