DVD Presentation ~ Sebastiao Salgado

11/05/2023 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

This evening, we will be viewing a documentary on the photography of Sebastiao Salgado.

This covers images from various wars in African countries and Europe within living memory of most of our members.

Some of the images are very brutal and hard-hitting, so please be prepared ~ There are also heartwarming stories about some other topics which help to balance this documentary.

I've always had an interest in photography, starting too many years ago than I care to remember. I have a variety of cameras in working order ~ pinhole, medium format, 35mm and digital. With working full time, there never seems to be enough free time to properly indulge in using them. 10 years or so ago, I took my first (and only!) "A" level ~ in photography. I was the only one on the course to only do darkroom work throughout. My own preferences lie with film and alternative processes ~ Digital is fine for most things, but for me it hasn't got as much "soul"! I enjoy sloshing around with various chemicals and I enjoy the unpredictability of some of the results. Having said that, I am happy to rise to the challenge of digital work and manipulating images for competitions and suchlike when time permits.
