Today I shall be in the studio…but rather than painting we will be discussing photography. It’s all part of my involvement with the Royal Photographic Society and more specifically the Contemporary Group within it. Some two years back a group of regional members got together and set up an East Midlands sub group. We have had several meetings, one or two lively speakers and some interesting exchanges including putting on a small show. However it has been a bit moribund since our ‘leader’ had to step down last year for personal reasons. Today’s meeting is an attempt to kick start a revival…here’s hoping.
My own photography sometimes feeds into my painting – and sometimes stands alone – as in this ‘tryout’ for an exhibition that one of my colleagues at Harrington Mill is curating in Seoul, Korea later in the spring.
