 The Phorum
Thursday 28th February 2019
The weather reached new heights and the clouds scudded across the sky
obscuring and then revealing fresh clear views of the stars.
An improvement on the blizzards of last month’s meeting.
The record breaking warm February meant that our theme subject for
February was tackled with alacrity and relish. 
Even though the connection or reference to the theme : Absence or Absent
was sometimes enigmatic or even just not decipherable everyone turned up with 
an abundance of intriguing images.
See the gallery here:
Do try to see the Don McCullin exhibition at the Tate Britain on until 6th May
and the Diane Arbus exhibition in the Hayward Gallery until 6th May.
This is an excellent website to discover what’s on photographically in London galleries:
The Leonardo exhibition is still on in the Southampton Art gallery - a really excellent show
in one of the best provincial galleries in Britain.
The Photography Show is on at the NEC from 16th - 19th March.
Following on from our very successful abstract themes our next one
could be even more challenging.
Our theme for March:  ARTIFICE - ARTIFICIAL

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 - this year's took place in the

Southampton City Art Gallery - January to March 2017 and

we have our next planned for sometime during 2019.

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.
