Barbara Schwarz showed London scenes - a number were cleverly composed to show an isolated person, although they were shot in busy places. Sue Judd is always conscientious in pursuing specific photography themes - and tonight was saw her return to monochrome. Brian Groves had jazz portraits, including high impact composites (tryptechs?) which he shares with the musicians.
We did a lot of travelling in one evening. Anja Andersson kicked off with images of her grandmother's town in Sweden , softly coloured waterside properties and woodland (above). Ilya Fisher took us on a speedy tour of the parks and food markets of China. An eclectic collection from Des Hill - Japan, Cuba, their trains & their passengers. Julie Calvert gave us wildlife from Laikipia, Kenya and images of her father in 1950s northern Australia (presumably the originals weren't shot by Julie?)
And Terry Fallis championed the art of traditional analogue printing. Lovely monochromes with a timeless quality.
We love our guest speakers but it's also fun to see the photography talents and styles we have amongst ourselves. Seeing great images shot by your peers or showing your own work is always a good motivator for getting out with your camera.
Thanks to Julie for organising.
