South East Documentary Group Meeting November 22nd 11am

The RPS Documentary Group South East Region was started off by Chichester Camera Club’s own Janey Devine a few years ago. While we are actively looking to attract members from the whole South East region, we also hope our programme will be of interest to Chichester members.

We are very pleased that Stewart Wall MA NCTJ PGCE ARPS has agreed to talk to us at our next meeting, 11am 22nd November 2020, which will be a Zoom meeting.

Stewart began his career in photography as a local press photographer in 1978.

In 2015 he undertook a BA (Hons) in photography, then a Masters in Visual Communication and is on the brink of beginning a doctorate. He also works with the RPS as a regional Organiser and with the Distinctions department.

Throughout his study he focused on ‘Hyper-Local Authentic Documentary’ Photography and during his talk will discuss one of his projects, entitled ‘The Stonemason’.

Colin Wood is the stonemason, and he has lived and worked in Caistor, Lincolnshire all his life. As did his father and his father before him. Caistor is where Stewart lives, and his studio is 50 yards from Colin’s workshop.

Stewart will also talk to us about developing panels of documentary work as historical evidence and discuss where this work fits into the RPS and elsewhere.

Please bring along your ideas for your current projects for discussion, or better still work in progress.

Look forward to seeing you
