At last week's club meeting we introduced the exciting ‘Morton Charlton’ project and the linked task of photographing 100 historic buildings in the centre of Hexham. We are now asking members to sign up for these two linked projects so that we can organise and get going!
As part of the Hadrian’s Wall 1900 festival, Northumberland Libraries, in partnership with Northumberland Archives, ran a project called Photographing the Roman Wall: Then and Now, to celebrate the life and work of the Hexham photographer and archaeologist, John Pattison Gibson (1838 – 1912).
We are pleased to be able to announce that not one, but two exhibitions of recent prints made by society members have gone on display this month, one in the Forum Cinema and the other available exclusively to outpatients of Hexham General Hospital.
Lynda Golightly expertly judged the third round of the 2022-23 Print competition from Whickam Photographic Club, many thanks to Linda for taking the time to review our prints and deliver her comments on them.
