Putney Group – July Update

Good to see everyone, especially Leonard, who believe it or not only came out of hospital the day before – now that’s what I call commitment.

The meeting started with a catch-up on our ideas for our exhibition next year. This was followed by a new idea – the reviewing of a photographic book using pages from the book displayed on screen to illustrate points in the text. Charlie Waite is a famous photographer, known to many in the group, and his book ‘The Making of Landscape Photographs’ although old, has much to offer us. In fact, he has a major exhibition on right now, James tells us, at The National Theatre -it’s free and runs until the 16th August. The general consensus was that this was a useful session and if anyone else would like to come forward and present something similar in future please let me know.

We then went on to review everyone’s theme pictures – this month ‘Natural Phenomena’ – and again some tremendous work on show. I would particularly like to mention Dee’s contribution here – it was her first meeting for which a big welcome and her pictures from her recent travels truly spectacular – thanks Dee.
