Ealing Group February Meeting

Despite the chilly weather we had a great turn out for our February meeting. This included a couple of newcomers and a visiting Lip member based inSwitzerland, who wanted some help with a project!

Jonny Baker, was presented with a bottle of Georgian wine. Thanks go to Jonny for looking after our website so well during the last couple of years.

First up was Jonny, with a presentation of PechaKucha 20×20. For those who don’t know, this is a presentation format where you show 20 images, for 20 seconds each. As the images forward automatically, you talk along to them. Apparently it was devised for use by architects to show their work! Several people thought this might be a nice idea for a future ‘assignment’ for the group.

Chris Hirsch gave a presentation of her work for the London Village Project. Chris is based in ‘Olde Hanwell’ and has photographed the local people and architecture where she lives. Chris was looking for feedback and ideas on how best to edit down her work to the 12 required by the project, from the large number of images she has taken.

March will be the last meeting we can hold in our current venue as Ealing OPEN are moving to new premises. At the moment we don’t know whether they’ll have room for us. Meanwhile, a couple of members have elected to check out potential spaces.

Lastly, we had a lively discussion about our next annual exhibition. We didn’t have one last year so members are keen to get going on this. We elected to make a start on finding a venue.

Our next meeting will be at 7.30 on Tuesday March 6th at OPEN Ealing,113 Uxbridge Road,London,W5 5TL. We welcome old and new members. Please bring along any work that you’d like to show the group.
