To mark the occasion of Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this year panels of prints, taken by member Joan Williams,
was prominently on display near the entrance. Whilst working for the BBC as its Chief Stills Photographer, Joan had many opportunities
to photograph the Queen, both on formal and informal occasions.
Also in the main body of the hall many panels of prints were displayed. Each member can choose their own theme, which is non
competitive. During the past year eight members gained a Distinction from the Royal Photographic Society all of which were hung. These were:
Eden Breitz, LRPS
Peter Highton, LRPS
Terry Hollands, LRPS
Gordana Ilic, LRPS
Gill Schwab, LRPS
Helen Sterne, LRPS
Chris Taylor, LRPS
And there was a Memorial Panel in respect of David Wise
A small selection of transparencies was on view, and projected images were displayed on a large monitor.
Much work goes into organising such a large exhibition
The organisation of the shop is one such example. Members sell cards they have made and other photographic
items such as
books and equipment. All members are welcome to attend the Opening and enjoy the opportunity to showcase their work.
56 members each had panel(s) on display. These panels are usually themed – the choice is left to the individuals concerned. Whilst the
majority of the printed images have been taken and printed digitally, some still choose to use old processes or mix old methods with new.
Visitors were asked to vote for their favourite panel and the winner was Jane Fakouri, who will hold the
Richmond Trophy for the forthcoming year.
Altogether there were 700 images on display during the exhibition. Approx. 200 members and guests attended the Opening and Private View,
with 694 visitors during the remainder of the exhibition. Next year the exhibition will take place from Wednesday 20th March to Easter Monday, 1st April 2013.
Please come along to see an extraordinarily wide collection of subjects and enjoy the photographs we have so much pleasure in presenting to friends and visitors.
You will be assured of a warm welcome.
