At our last meeting we showed work in progress, whether a fully fledged project or a series of photographs with a theme. Some people were embarking on new projects while others showed work already well under way or completed. Whatever stage we find ourselves at, these meetings always offer a good opportunity to gain valuable feedback and encouragement and discuss ideas and plans.
Amongst the work on show was Teresa’s ongoing series of images of distorted architecture reflected in car windows, a new project from Danilo about gardens and the people who tend them, Sally’s environmental portraits of people out and about in various locations and Edith’s meditative images of a London pond throughout the seasons. Taking us further afield were Angelika’s striking series of black and white photographs shot on location in China, Ariadne’s black and white analogue portraits taken on the streets of Calcutta and Anna’s vibrant and colourful portrayal of a 4th July parade in the USA. Rashida’s poignant series of images was made in an intensive care unit – a very personal project given a sense of distance by the use of textured layering. Ray’s Japanese print inspired magazine – a mixture of analogue and digital collage processes – showed the high standards it was possible to achieve in this medium.
Our next meeting will take place on Wednesday 14th September 2016 at 18.45 at the usual venue – The Art Workers Guild, 6 Queens Square, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 3AT.
The theme will be Storytelling – things to consider could include a series of photographs with an obvious narrative thread, various ways of editing to achieve a narrative or even a single image which tells a story.
Please bring along any work you wish to share on a memory stick or in print or book form.
