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.

Looking Back, Looking Forward

At January's meeting we may have had the most people showing photos ever - it felt that way anyway. We spent a while reflecting on what has been a fantastic year for the group with lots of exhibiting as a whole group, in small groups, in individual shows and in the wider LIP exhibition. And the group has welcomed several new members so it feels as though there is lots of energy and (crucially) photography. Below is a selection of single images that were shown as a sort of pick of the year's photos.

Angelika showed photos of a visit to Chad, and Edmond showed photos from Moscow State Circus whilst it was on Ealing Common.

We then spent a while looking forward and agreed to take part in BEAT again and will decide theme next time and then March meeting will be one where members share photo books they have created - looking forward to that!

The photos below are from Omar, Frankie, Dorota, Edmond, Robin, Jonny, Ali and Chris (M) respectively 

 


National Treasures - Exhibition at Cliveden

LIp

Ray Higginbottom has a solo exhibition at the National trust venue Cliveden. He uses objects found from National Trust properties and turns them into something beautiful. His inspiration, he says, comes from across the artistic spectrum. From music and poetry to film and theatre, Ray is a true artist. His ability to 'find the unexpected in the mundane' is translated through his photographs. It runs for a couple of months until the end of February. You'll need to pay to get into Cliveden.


Brick Lane, Tokyo, big skies, and holiday snaps

At our November meeting we spent some time discussing our recent participation in the Borough of Ealing Art Trail (BEAT) – and the report by member Richard Baker-Donnelly who attended the BEAT after-discussion. Our consensus was that being part of the Art Trail had increased footfall to our exhibition considerably. Several visitors expressed interest in LIP, and some have become members. We look forward to participating again in 2018!

We briefly discussed the Artisan exhibition which is going well so far. The second group now have their work on display and the last group will be on from early December. Do pop in to Artisan, New Broadway, Ealing – see the current display and sample their delicious coffee and pastries.

Several people brought work (and books) along to share and this is a sample.

Edmond Terakopian had brought along a series of colour images taken during three days in October. These were taken around Brick Lane. The two images shown here have a common thread of illumination; the burger van and the lady with the smartphone in a bar.

With Tokyo: ancient and modern, Sean McDonnell found a perfect opportunity to use old and new photography techniques this summer. First some traditional street photography using black and white 35mm film, then some new work using a 360 camera. This is something relative new for Sean and he is keen to make contact with other LIP members interested in 360o photography.

Frankie McAllister took these on a recent walk along the Southbank. The fabulous afternoon light and big turbulent skies of this time of year lend the familiar landmarks and skyline a bit of extra drama and colour.

And finally, Chris Moxey showed us some of her holiday snaps from a visit to Norfolk during the summer.

Thanks to everyone for bringing along books and photos. Because we’ve been so busy in recent months, particularly with exhibitions, our book-making evening has been postponed until February. If you’re interested in taking part just bring along a book you’ve made – it can be home-made, blurbed, large, small, fat, thin, whatever… and be as creative as you like. We’ll share and discuss our processes/methods!

It’s customary that in December we have a Christmas meal together instead of our usual meeting, so the next ‘formal’ meeting will be at 7.30pm on January 9th at The Forester, 2 Leighton Road, Ealing W13 9EP.
