WINTERINGHAM CAMERA CLUB

MONTHLY REPORT : JUNE 2016



Paul Empson was the speaker at the meeting on 8 June. Paul has talked to us on several occasions in the past, giving us insights into his many interesting travels, and while this was no exception since the second half of his presentation showed us as many of the sights and sites of Istanbul,  there was more to the evening than Turkish delights.

Perhaps I was not the only person in the audience who had not heard of Lewis Hine (1874 -1940), but his remarkable photographs, both artisticand journalistic, was a good subject to illustrate the topic of Photography to change the world. Using the enormous glass-plate cameras of the time, Hine documented working children at the beginning of the 20th Century; steel-making and mining; building of skyscrapers, life in the Depression and more.

Thanks are also due to Paul for judging the photo slot (Bright Colours), and the following are the winning four:

 

First

Watching night become day

John Tyson

Second

Trolleybus Line-up

Ken Jacobs

Third

Patriotic Washday

Ron Chant

Fourth

Small Tortoiseshell

Adrian White

The meeting on 13 July will be a surprise as the advertised speakers have had to pull out. The photo slot asks for A Cute Photograph.

New members are always welcome.
