The Phorum


Nursling Village Hall
SO16 0XH
Thursday 28th March at 7.30pm
This month the Phorum was admirably presented and facilitated by 
who stepped in while our usual co-ordinator was away.
The level of invention, craft and art presented for viewing this
month was truly remarkable. Rarely seen, and only when competitiveness
is not an issue. Our photographers genuinely feel free to experiment 
without fear of contradiction or assessment by an arbitrary judge.
Ideas, suggestions, and critique are profuse and make for a very lively evening.
Unfortunately this month we don’t have a list of photographers’ names to
go with our gallery:
so enjoy the images for what they are…you’ll know if you’ve seen them and you’ll 
know which are yours.  A superb set (they don’t all have go along with the theme!).
On the subject of exhibitions, we have a date for our next show in the 
Southampton City Art Gallery - 14th March - 9th May 2020
plenty of time to get it together although experience tells me that it creeps 
up on us very quickly.
I’ll be having a few pictures hung for a month in the Turner Sims foyer at the University
from the beginning till the end of May 2019
Keep an eye open for the Photo London days of remarkable exhibitions in 
Somerset House 16th - 19th May 2019 -
Our next meeting will be April 25th at 7.30pm in Nursling Village Hall SO16 0XH
Our theme for this month is Isolated Objects.

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.
