Sketch of 2019 Ealing LIP Meetings

Following February's meeting we have sketched the plan for the year as follows (backfilling Jan and Feb!). All meeting will of course have space for the sharing of photos as that is at the heart of the group and our practice.

  • January - go to the opening night of Thirteen at Lauderdale House
  • February - plan the year ahead and discuss BEAT exhibition
  • March - bring a photography book or three that you love
  • April - theme ''documentary' - discuss Don Mcullin exhibition at Tate (visit beforehand if possible)
  • May - hive mind/wisdom of the crowd - in advance we will get questions form group members and attempt to answer them from within the group
  • June - desert island snaps - detail to follow (plus on a Sat/Sun a visit to a woodland for a group day meeting)
  • July - theme "portrait" with accompanying challenge
  • August - curation - with guest speaker tba
  • September - opening night of BEAT exhibition
  • October - photo book - bring a photo book you have made
  • November - theme "street" 
  • December - Christmas meal

The idea for the year ahead is that members of the group will take on chairing/facilitating an evening which will mean pulling it together, leading the evening and managing any related challenge and sharing of photographs. This is not set in stone and may change but it gives a feel for where we are headed and hopefully enables some planning ahead.


the memory of trees

 

 

February's meeting saw a couple of new people join. The deadline for entering BEAT 2019 is 19th March so that was a big focus along with planning the year ahead (see the post above).

The meetings now being on Wednesday mean that Ray Higginbottom will be back joining us from time to time. He is now editor of one of the RPS magazines for the visual art group and the first one he has done arrived the day before so he was able to show us that and it looked great! And we enjoyed looking at some of the latest photos he has been working on which include a new exploration 'the memory of trees' (an Enya album title inspired theme!). Here's a couple of the first photos above...


January meeting moved

Please note if you are coming to the January meeting it is on January 9 (and not the usual first Weds) and we have decided to go to the opening of the Thirteen exhibition below rather than our usual meeting venue of the Forrester.


Exhibition Opens

Oblique Strategies from Edmond Terakopian on Vimeo.

We had a wonderful opening of our group Oblique Strategies exhibition. The video above was put together by Edmond Terakopian and gives a really good feel of the photos, how they are hung and the space. About 150 people came along to the opening - thank you all so much! The photos look great in the space.

There is a gallery of the photos here where you can also purchase prints in a range of sizes and types of paper.

BEAT now kicks off this weekend so do have a look at the exhibition and go and check out other local artists including Ray who has a solo show in Fade To Black.


Online Gallery

There is a brand new online gallery which currently has two projects in of the two group shows including Oblique Strategies. You can order prints to buy too! Please note if you are ordering a print that is square it will get sent to you square even though that doesn't seem to be an ordering option. Here's the blurb from the about section of the site:

Welcome to our gallery website where you can view the group's projects and also order prints from some of our photographers. If the image you're after is not featured here or available for purchase, please contact the photographer directly to make arrangements.

The online gallery's print sales system (best used on a Mac or PC) caters for everything from smaller and resin coated prints at very affordable prices, aimed towards the photo enthusiast, all the way to larger prints (including real BW prints, fibre prints and Giclée prints) aimed more at the appreciator of very high quality prints. All prints are made by Metro Imaging, one of the UK's top professional photo labs.

Please note that if the image you're ordering is in a square format, the size of the print will correspond to the smaller dimension of the print size ordered. For example, if you order a 10"x8" print, a square image will be 8"x8"

Huge thanks to Edmond Terakopian for his efforts in setting it up.
