Please note Worcestershire Camera Club special interest groups (Digital Photography, Contemporary, Audio Visual, and Photography Development) are currently running online via Zoom.  Members signed up for notifications from the groups will receive emails with details of the meetings. 


Our June meeting proved to be yet another ‘gem’ and a visual feast of images, imagination and interpretation.

Purely by chance, several members chose topics which were near-related.  Ruth Bourne, Judy Knights, Stewart Bourne, Maddy Pennock and Bob Oakley depicted and interpreted aspects of trees in a variety of ways.

As a contrast, Clive Haynes featured industrial remnants to interpret the historical exploitation of the mineral wealth of Wales whilst, coincidentally, also in Wales, Eric Williams concentrated upon the crumbling remains of a solitary cottage.

Charles Ashton also reviewed the past with his exploration of ‘The Romance of Steam’.

Quirky corners, humour and a wealth excellent observation underpinned the intriguing viewpoints selected by Geoff Hicks, Peter Young, Alex Isaacs and Bob Train.

Tessa Mills continued her sensitive and eloquent series of multiple-exposures which express coming to terms with a ‘different world’.

As a newcomer to Worcester, William Bannister presented a brief insight into the beginnings of his fresh ‘visual adventure’.

All the images together with introductory ‘statements’ are ready to view in our ‘Visions’, page-turning, e-book for this month via this link:  ‘Visions June 2020’.

 

Our two outside sources stimulated much interest and discussion. 

1   The imagery of Polish artist, Anita Andrzejewska, is a visual roller-coaster ride through time, space and the imagination.  Each image in her project, ‘Outside In’, presents a clever and frequently subtle visual link to the next picture.  Here’s the link:  Outside In

2   An eclectic selection of images from ‘The 2020 International Juried Show at the Center of Photographic Arts’.  Here’s the link: 2020 International

The possibility of arranging a CPG visit to a local to town or village to inspire interpretation and imagery was supported by many members.  We’ll look further into this and give more information in due course.

Thanks for your continued support to keep CPG a stimulating and important feature of WCC. We’re all the richer for it.

Best wishes,

Tessa and Clive.
