Joint meeting of the Southern Region with the Documentary Group
Sunday 29th November 2015
11:30am – 1:30pm
Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry Street, Winchester, SO23 8SB
The Southern Region has nearly 1000 members of whom over 40 are members of the Documentary Group (DG). Do you like the idea of a joint sub-group of the Documentary Group and Southern Region? ‘Documentary Southern’
We’re a large area with lots going on that’s worth photographing – including historic places, festivals, other events and wonderful buildings.
A Documentary Southern Sub-Group could enable field trips, workshops and other meetings to facilitate meetings of like-minded people. It would help us to take photographs, learn from each other, all in a friendly environment.
We’d like to invite you to a meeting, in Winchester, to discuss whether this is something worth setting up and if so how it could work and ideas for field trips. We will hold this meeting on Sunday 29th November 2015 at Winchester Discovery Centre to discuss the potential of this new venture.
For those of you who wonder if you are interested in documentary photography wikipedia has the following definition:
“Documentary photography usually refers to a popular form of photography used to chronicle both significant and relevant to history and historical events and everyday life. It is typically covered in professional photojournalism, or real life reportage, but it may also be an amateur, artistic, or academic pursuit.”
