EVENTS for JULY 2019
Thursday 4th July – AV night
This is an evening which is popular with our members. Lots have asked can these evenings be more frequent. So this is the second of our yearly events. Please bring your AVs to the evening. To make it fair, everyone will have a turn at showing their work. More will be shown dependent on numbers and time available.
Thursday 11th July – ADAPS Question Time – Ask the experts
This is an opportunity to ask a panel of ADAPS experts your question in relation to photography. This evening will be informal and a chance to ask the simplest to a more challenging question. Previous nights like this have been enjoyed by everyone who has attended.
Thursday 18th July – The London Salon
We annually show the work presented by the London Salon.
About the salon
Exhibition Medal Winners
In its early years, photography was used almost exclusively to record the appearance of people, places and things. The processes and materials available set serious limits to picture-making, and very few attempted to use photography to make artistic pictures. Later in the nineteenth century, some of those who had trained in art took up photography, which led to placing more emphasis on selecting and arranging rather than on technique and materials – art rather than fact.
A number of influential photographers broke away from the Royal Photographic Society in May 1892 in protest against its emphasis over a number of years on science and technology at the expense of other aspects of photography. They set up the Linked Ring Brotherhood as an international body to promote artistic photography. The Linked Ring held its first Photographic Salon in 1893. From about 1908, many disputes arose on attitudes to selection procedures and this led to the setting up of the London Salon in 1910.
Open International Photographic Salons have been held in nearly every year since 1910.
Thursday 25th July - Outdoor Event – Model Night at Astley Pit
Each year our members have enjoyed an evening of photography at this venue. Hopefully the weather will be kind. I am sure John Riley will post more information nearer the time.
