Tuesday 3rd July – 60×60

The next DCC meeting will be on Tuesday July 3rd at 7pm at the Outhouse on Broughton Street Lane.

Last month six photographers participated in the 10×10 challenge and took 10 shots in 10 minutes. This month we will be bringing 10 prints to pass around and discuss for a minute per image. Hence the title of the monthly meet-up: 60×60. Hopefully if all has gone to plan we will have 60 prints to look at.

If you missed the last meeting it is not to late to take your own 10×10 challenge and bring the results along to share. Pick a place, set a timer and create.

Last month’s reading touched upon how photographers capture and collect the moments around them, but also how the reality depicted in the print and the reality of life differ greatly. Did those 10 minutes preserve something real? Was art or artefact created?

Everyone is welcome to attend, we look forward to seeing you there!

As we experiment with new formats for the monthly meetings we would appreciate any ideas or feedback for improving – leave a comment here, tweet, facebook message or comment on instagram!

Advance warning – in August we intend to have one or two festival exhibition meet-ups. Do send your suggestions in for shows or exhibitions to check out!

June’s reading –

The minute you start saying something, ‘Ah, how beautiful! We must photograph it!’ you are already close to the view of the person who thinks that everything that is not photographed is lost, as if it had never existed, and that therefore, in order really to live, you must photograph as much as you can, and to photograph as much as you can you must either live in the most photographable way possible, or else consider photographable every moment of your life. The first course leads to stupidity; the second to madness.”

April 2017 – Reflection

The next DCC meeting will be on April 6th 2017 at Stills.

Doors open at 6.30pm for 7pm start.

The theme is Reflection.

Possible interpretations could include:
Actual reflections in windows, water, mirrors.
Self reflection.
Symmetry.

Some photographers to consider:
V&A collection.
Marie-Claire Montanari
Lee Friedlander
Daniel Kulka

Bring one or more printed photographs, to be displayed on the wall and be prepared to say a few words to explain the idea behind your image.

New attendees are very welcome and if you just want to watch rather than display work that is fine. The DCC does not have a formal membership structure. Attendees are asked to make a £3 donation directly to Stills on the night to help them maintain their facilities for our use.
