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.
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.
Congratulations to PAGB Group member JOHN HOWES who had 6 of his images accepted in the Sydney International Exhibition of Photography and 5 acceptances in the Swansea international Salon of Photography.

Next week’s special interest group meeting is the RPS group. This group supports Club members and visitors who are interested in working towards the Royal Photographic Society awards. You are very welcome to come along to find out more about the group – there is no need to bring images, but if you have work you’d like to have considered in developing an RPS panel (that is a collection of images that work together) do bring them along. No need to make them full size, or mounted at this stage. 7.30 in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre, with a cost of £3 for members and £4 for visitors
