Axminster Photography Club to celebrates 25 years

18:30 16 August 2012

Archant

This year the Axminster Photography Group will have been meeting for 25 years and to celebrate this they are presenting a fantastic exhibition of their work at different venues in the area.

Members are enthusiastic, practising photographers using both colour and monochrome and come from a wide area of East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset.

The group grew out of a traditional camera club with the intention of stretching themselves in new directions.

The ethos of the group is supportive as opposed to competitive and members aim to help each other raise the standard of their work both from a technical and artistic viewpoint.

The 25th anniversary is being celebrated with three exhibitions, the first of which took place in the Malthouse Gallery of The Lyme Regis Town Mill.

The exhibitions will include images from the dark room era through the early days of colour printing to the advent of the digital age. There will be a display of work produced by current members and a selection of images that have gained recognition and awards from the Western Counties Photographic Federation.

Some of these images have also won national awards and been displayed in international salons.

The images will be on display at Pecorama, in Beer, from September 17 to 22. Again, admission to the photographic exhibition is free, as is admission to the gardens. (There is a charge for the railway exhibition in Pecorama).

There will be a final exhibition in The Arts Café, in Axminster, from November 10 to 24.
