Story-telling, drama, poverty, expressions, personalities and meaning. All these words tell me what this exhibition means. The Gammelgaard monochrome exhibition, held in the Atkins building in Hinckley, is totally different to the previous 2 exhibitions on view today. No mount boards here as each print is printed on paper of varying sizes. All work can be purchased for charity and the work by the authors are donation. It’s great to see something very different in the heart of England. Please visit all exhibitions. They are all free and worth exploring your mind and extending your creative boundaries.

The second exhibition was at the BRITE centre in Braunstone, Leicester. This time it was presented by Leicester and Leicestershire Photographic Society. Not only where there L&LPS members prints, but other Leicestershire camera club members prints, including mine! I had my Full Steam Ahead print which was accepted in the David Clarke Trophy for GCR prints and Rutland Street which was part of Earl Shilton’s Greenless Trophy panel of 6 mono images which came second. Well done. Many prints were typical camera club stuff with some good and some not so good but credit to all who entered and got accepted. Click here to visit their website. Right off to Hinckley for the final exhibition of the day.
A day of exhibitions in Leicestershire on a glorious Saturday. The sky is out, the clouds have disappeared leaving a true sense of summer. First up was Leicester pro commercial photographer, Keith Cooper. His work was on display in the old library in Leicester city centre now home of LPPG. His work included a magnificent 14 metre pano of Leicester city centre at dusk. Wow the detail was amazing and is the highlight. Others works of Leicester landmarks are there taken with a mixture of Tilt and shift lenses and switched panos using a Gigapan device. Click here to visit his website. Right to the L&LPS exhibition at the BRITE centre, Braunstone.
