These stunning images are just a small selection of the works that will be on display at Surrey Photographic Association’s biennial exhibition at Guildford House Gallery this month.
Photographic prints and projected digital images from the best work of 52 photography clubs in Surrey, West Sussex and north-east Hampshire will be on display from Wednesday April 2 to Saturday April 26.
The prints shown in the exhibition will fall into the three classes of colour, nature and monochrome, while there are two classes in projected digital images, open and nature.
All images on view will be the result of a rigorous selection process performed by the highly respected selectors Margaret Collis, Dave Gibbins and Leigh Preston.
The association says that photography has been experiencing a resurgence of interest in the past few years, fuelled by the digital revolution that has given people access to processes that were once the domain of only the most enthusiastic photographer.
Digital printing in particular, they say, has become a viable activity for those who previously found the requirements of “wet” darkrooms too onerous or impractical.
The result has been that many of the region’s clubs have seen increases in membership, which in turn has led to higher standards and increased competitiveness in this exhibition and other club and inter-club competitions.
