Photographs decorate Fenton House's staff work space
- Published 5th August 2012
The Society has recently completed a small project to decorate the staff working area with photographs from its historic Collection alongside the work of well-known members. The space had been largely devoid of photographs which seemed a little remiss for the world’s leading photographic society. Although it is a working area a large number of visitors and volunteers come in to it for meetings and to see the headquarters staff.
Zoë Tinkler from The Society’s membership department selected nineteen images and managed the project liaising with photographers, the printers and framers.
Dr Michael Pritchard, Director-General of The Royal Photographic Society, commented: “The Society is very grateful to Hahnemühle which donated its fine art pearl paper and to Redcliffe Imaging of Bristol which made the prints. The selected photographers have been generous in allowing their images to be used and Joe Cornish’s large landscape creates a real impact as one enters the room. They are a very welcome addition to the building. The Society’s staff enjoy the images and they have been widely admired by visitors”.
