Central London Group June Meeting

A slightly smaller meeting than usual but still a dozen showing work. The theme ‘coast’ brought a selection of beach and harbour scenes from many parts of the world, and a tribute to Bill Brandt’s sculptural nudes on the shore. Two more photographers had also gravitated to the Sussex coast, one finding colours and land-forms in an expansive view over Cuckmere Haven that prompted thoughts of Ravilious and Nash. Wilder shores of Northumberland and the Farne Islands brought kittiwakes, seals, puffins and guillemots; Cornwall close-ups of flowers on the coast path near St Ives given the Tintype app treatment. And then a claim that the lower Thames is not a river but an arm of the sea, so X-pan images of shipping, giant cranes and the North Kent marshes.
