In this, their fourth exhibition hosted at Lauderdale House, thirteen professional and accomplished amateur photographers display their very different approaches to the art. Each set of photographs reflects the photographer’s identity: the image reveals its creator’s personality.
Some are photographers who observe, frame the moment, and release the shutter; others are photographers who take a preconceived idea, stage it, then photograph it. In between are those who experiment with unconventional equipment or use digital means to produce highly imaginative and abstract work. And while most use digital cameras, there are still those who are faithful to film.
Whatever the method, this exhibition spans genres including land- and waterscape, portraiture, documentary, abstract, and minimalism. But common to all is an aim to produce visual aesthetic pleasure through their images for the viewer – and to convey meaning, whether subtle or explicit.
