Our meeting theme last month The Bigger Picture gave plenty of scope for interpretation. Working on a larger scale and manipulating digital composites are just two of the ways in which the bigger picture can be achieved. Photography is also often associated with moving in close with the camera so it was interesting to see the results of stepping back to include more in the picture. Amongst the work on show was a selection of panoramas of wide open spaces ranging from the sublime to the everyday, a mesmerising and mysterious image taken on a large format camera with polaroid film, a larger than life portrait dwarfing its life-size subject, and a heart-rending composite of images of war-torn Syria giving a bigger picture than any single image could do.
