The 2013 Viewfinder Photographic Society exhibition has gone ‘on the road’ following its recent success in Skidby, which attracted over 350 visitors in just one weekend.
The exhibition consists of over 60 VPS members’ prints – the very best of those recently exhibited at Skidby as voted for by the public – and will be on view in the hospital reception area.
“Our exhibition has grown in popularity each time it’s held in Skidby, so taking it on the road seems like the natural thing to do and we’re really grateful to the hospital for hosting our members’ work – hopefully, it’s the first of many,” said David Marshall, VPS Chairman.
“Digital photography has become really popular, enabling people to more easily express themselves creatively, even if it’s just by using the camera built into a mobile phone. We try to encourage club members to stop using their cameras’ ‘full auto’ setting, to take control and start experimenting. The results are here for all to see.” added David.
The club, which now boasts a waiting list, has nearly fifty members, all with various levels of expertise and interests, and an exhibition provides a focus for them during the year. Many members have only recently become interested in photography and want to learn more by being with others who share their passion.
Gordon Scaife, Principal Leisure, Tourism and Culture Policy Officer at East Riding Council and regular supporter of the VPS annual exhibition said; “What you see on display demonstrates just how much talent there is around and how being part of the club helps people to develop.”
The hospital is open to the public from 8.30am to 8.30pm (Monday – Friday) and 11.00am to 5.00pm (weekends).
