Opening welcome

Ian welcomed our speaker from Sheffield Photographic Society, Colin New, plus returning members Paul & Wendy McGreavy – Paul has just returned from working overseas (the Oman?) for nearly four years.

Our guest speaker – Colin New

The star of the evening was Colin New, who spent 90 minutes fascinating us with his view on Great Photographers. We had  a great evening, looking at some of the images from these great photographers. Colin had spent a very significant time in researching who should be included in his list.

Colin didn’t just show a selection of images, as he spent time giving a potted history of these photographers, then spoke from the heart about each of the images. It’s clear that Colin has spent many hours researching the subject, talking eruditely and with passion (through the eye of a photographer) about the various photographers and the images he showed. Many thanks Colin, your hard work and persistence gave all who attended a real insight into these many and various Great Photographers.
