pictureNow face-to-face monthly meetings are cancelled until the UK government says it’s safe to resume. We want to keep in touch though, so we’re holding short weekly virtual meetings via Zoom. These happen every Monday at 7 p.m. BST. You are welcome to join us.
Our next meeting is at 7pm on Monday 24 May. The meeting ID is the same: 728 272 0736, password 6uXULY or click here to enter the waiting room.
The topic for our photos this week is Shadows, but we’re interested in whatever’s taken your fancy. And if we get a chance we’ll be looking at the colour work of the American photographer and painter Saul Leiter. I suggest you browse these images to start then check his biography. Hope to see you online soon!
In the meantime we are still planning to hold our exhibition at the Ideas Hub in Chelmsford library. Althought the timing is uncertain we still want members to work towards this with 2 to 3 images from each active member. Each image will have a mask overlay revealing a small section of the image. The viewer lifts the mask to see the whole photograph. The idea is for the partial image to say one thing and the whole image to say something else. This may be as simple as “what is it?” then “Ah I see!” but it would be good to go beyond this to pose different questions & answers or show images within images.
We hope you stay well but if you do get the virus that it is only mild for you.
We have 1 exhibitions in 2020:
- July: Ideas Hub, Chelmsford Library
Although we have suspended meetings during the coronavirus epidemic, in normal times we meet informally at monthly intervals on the first Monday of the month. The venue is usually a pub in the Chelmsford area. We’ll let you know via the Newsletter (subscribe here), the Web site and Facebook when and where the next meeting will be and if you fancy coming along for a photographic conflab you’ll be very welcome.
We look forward to seeing you in the future!
Tracy and Malcolm
