February 2019

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.

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...
