Keynote & Annual Award Presentaions 2017-18 Season

This years excellent keynote by nationally acclaimed photographer, Ian Macdonald took place in the Forum Cinema on Tuesday the 24th April. The evening, which was open to the public, included a screening of a documentary film ‘Shooting Time’ covering Ian’s early work on Teesside and a presentation on his more recent work.

 

The evening also provided an ideal opportunity to socialise with members whilst viewing an exhibition of members work over refreshments and a excellent buffet in the forum Café.
