Back in the day

Robin’s prints shared at January’s meeting sparked this month’s theme of Back In The Day. Group members brought some personal pictures and gave us all the opportunity to reflect on our own journeys with photography so that made it quite a special evening.

We travelled both in time and geography. Brigitte took us to Paris in 1972, Arun to experience colonial life in Zambia in the sixties and seventies, Carolyn to Portugal through a slide viewer! Richard had a selection including his first self portrait using a Zenit-E that brought back memories for some.

It was great to see Ray Higginbottom now we’re meeting on Wednesdays and he shared some prints from his archive using a range of processes. Jonny and Sean each shared informal family photographs. It stimulated thoughts on the tradition of the family album and post-holiday slideshows.

We also updated our plans for ideas for the rest of the year and Ray offered to chair March’s meeting on the theme of Censorship.
