Central London Group February Meeting

Our February meeting was all about black-and-white (or “monochrome”) and it proved to be a great demonstration of the many different ways in which we can now work with this form. Some of us are still (mainly) working with black-and-white film, while others use their camera settings, set their brains on b/w, or convert post-production. The reasons for choosing b/w over colour ranged from practical (in the days of film, it was much cheaper) to political considerations and from aesthetic to historical meanings. We had interesting discussions about what can happen when a photographer converts a project from colour to b/w. The range of subject matter was as wide as ever:

Ariadne van de Ven

Everyday Churches by Danilo Leonardi

The theme will be Current Projects/Next Exhibition. Please bring along any work you wish to share on a memory stick or in print form.
