The Phorum


The Phorum

Thursday January 30th 2020
Nursling Village Hall at 7.30pm
Our theme for December and January was 
Chaos and 
brought chaotic results….see the gallery here:
Our next theme is: CALM
Mike Stacey of the Ordnance Survey Camera Club came along and gave us a 
fascinating talk on “What is it that makes a good photograph?…What are the signs and symbols?”.
He showed us plenty of examples, some very well known and some new to us
and in all cases stimulated some very lively discussion.
Many thanks Mike.
We’ll get you to return and continue where you left off!
The Exhibition is under way and will open in Southampton Art Gallery on March 13th 2020.
Antony Cecil-Wright currently has an exhibition of his intriguing and original artworks 
derived from his photography in the Turner Sims Concert hall in the University of Southampton.
Our next meeting is Thursday 27th February 
in the Nursling Village Hall at 7.30 pm (SO16 0XH)

 About The Phorum photography group

The Phorum was formed in response to requests for a meeting place which would allow photographers to be acknowledged for their work, to have it peer appraised with lively discussion and to learn from others in the group.

Unlike many Camera Clubs there are no competitions and each month there is a set theme chosen by the group, the results of which are reviewed at each meeting.

We have regular talks and workshops covering technique, the history and range of genres of photography and well known practitioners.

One of the aims of the group is for our work to be seen.

We have regular exhibitions - last year's took place in the Southampton City Art Gallery - January to March 2017 and we have our next planned for sometime during 2020.

We are also keen on the publication of self published photography books and utilising Flickr and our own websites to display our work.

Our meetings take place on the last Thursday of every month.

The group is made up of very enthusiastic and prolific amateur photographers.

Absolute beginners can find their way with help and advice from those of us more knowledgeable  and those with experience and skill can expand, find new creativity and direction away from the sometimes limited range of ideas and genres available in traditional clubs.
