50 Members and their guests enjoyed the First London Region Members Exhibition at the Croatian Embassy last night.

45 images demonstrating a wide variety of genres were on display – from studio portraits through to creative and fine art.

Croatia’s new ambassador to the United Kingdom, Igor Pokaz, gave a shoirt address of welcome and Neil Cordell speaking on behalf of the London Region Team, thanked everyone who had been involved in putting on the Exhibition – Jonathan as Curator, Lorraine as Administrator, the selectors (more below) and, of course, the Photographers, without whose contribution the event would not have happened!

Four people were involved in the selection of images:   Penny Dixie ARPS, Mo Connelly LRPS and Head of the Documentary Group, Neil Cordell Co-Regional Organiser for London, and Jonathan Taylor, who also curated the Exhibition.  This was not a competition, but each of the selectors was invited to nominate their favourite picture.  Authors of the chosen pictures were presented with a special commemorative RPS ribbon and the selections are shown below to tempt you to visit the Exhibition to see more wonderful images....

Penny Dixie’s favourite was Gordana Johnson’s image entitled “Weekend Fun”.

Mo Connelly chose Golden Reflection by Dawn Clifford LRPS

Jonathan Taylor chose “Louis”by Bronwen Fitzpatrick LRPS

Neil Cordell’s selection was “Amber in Reflection” by Kyle Tallett LRPS

The evening seemed to be much enjoyed and a quantity of wine was consumed!

The Exhibition can be viewed at the Croatian Embassy from now until mid-November during the Opening Hours of the Embassy, which are:

Mondays to Thursdays inclusive:  11.00am to 2.00pm

Friday:   10.00am to 12.00 noon.

We plan to travel the Exhibition to various other venues in the London Region in due course.

I'd like to add my own special thanks to Jonathan for all his hard work and expertise, and to Lorraine for her organisation; to the Selectors for their input and - above all - to the Croatian Ambassador and his Staff for their kind hospitality in allowing us to use their wonderful facility and for their help in making the evening so successful.

It was a very enjoyable evening and worth all the hard work put in, shame I was driving on that evening and my wine intake was very limited :)
