February 2016 – The Present

February’s theme will be “The Present”. Hosted by George Clerk.

When: Thursday 4th February from 7pm
Where: Stills

I’m planning to look at the ways ‘the present’ has been explored in photography by briefly looking at how a few photographers in the past have represented ‘the present’, both in relation to the current world around them, and to attempts to represent the ‘present moment’, something that perhaps photography has an opportunity to do well.

Then I’ll be looking at the ways that photographers have approached these two aspects of ‘the present’ during this century. A few of the photographers: Eugene Atget, Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Daido Moriyama, Rinko Kawauchi, Ryan McGinley, Paul Graham, Melinda Gibson, Yao Lu and Richard Prince.

Please donate £3 to Stills on the night to help them maintain the facilities for our use.

    Sometimes I think it would be good to have the talk first, and then inspired and informed to go and take photos in time for the next meeting.
