Barnes Group May 2017

The Barnes satellite group met on Tuesday 30th May with the theme of ‘Skylines’. Following a successful inaugural exhibition in March, the members met with renewed enthusiasm and vigour, and the quality of photographs on display reflected this. Amongst our favourite photographs from the evening were:


St Paul’s Cathedral by Paul Rawkins


Myanmar Sunset by Andrew Rapley


Coronet Peak by Martin Conway


Red Clouds at Sunset by Alastair Wilson-Clarke


and Hammersmith Bridge by Darius Nikbin

Each photo seemed to exemplify an ethic the group has developed over the past year of taking photos that capture a great moment in time, as Roland Barthes said in Camera Lucida, “What the photograph reproduces to infinity has occurred only once.”

The group next meets on Tuesday 27th June with the theme ‘The Sheer Beauty of Nature’.
