We enjoyed a wide variety of imagery and ideas during this entertaining and lively meeting and everyone gained from the discussions and insights  about the work presented. 

Once again there were many moments of good humour as ideas and possibilities were explored.

We viewed many pictures taken during the highly successful visit to the derelict The Red Wing at Croome Court organised by Lionel Matthews.  Each one of us had made our own interpretation of this multi-layered environment ranging from the direct and figurative approach to those involving subject/camera movement and multiple-exposures.  We have a real treasure house of imagery and one of Angie Hill's distinctive interpretations features as our 'header' this month.  Our gallery below shows many of these.

Thank you Lionel for making this possible.  We hope to arrange another visit to The red Wing in a few months. 

We viewed the portfolio of images from internationally renowned photographer Dianne Fox on the theme of 'Unnatural History'.  Her images pose questions about why humans display animals in dioramas. Fox says "my interest in the ways we objectify nature is clearly on display here in what turns out to be photographs of a very unnatural history". By using reflection and the inclusion of items within the diorama’s case meant to remain unseen, she seeks to point to its unreality.

Here's the link to UnNatural History.
