Vestry House Exhibition

Vestry House Exhibition

As you know, Andy has secured us an exhibition at the Vestry House Museum, Vestry Road, from 15th March to 18th May 2014.  This is a great opportunity for members to show work, both printed and projected.

The theme by popular consent will be Unseen Waltham Forest. We will aim to uncover and explore aspects of Waltham Forest whether unseen, or unnoticed, by the public. Hidden or unusual locations, quirky viewpoints, interesting details, an alternative take on the familiar – whatever suggests itself.


The deadline for submissions will be 24th February next year.
Work can be black and white or colour, and the standard size print will be 20×16″ or 500x400mm; mounts can be black or white.  You can submit up to 3 prints.  Ian will be offering the usual printing and mounting service, and will give further details at any meeting, including how to submit images for projections.
This is also an opportunity to sell work, details to follow.On the 16th December we will take the opportunity to brainstorm this theme.  Come along with suggestions no matter how strange or bizarre they are.

As this is a major exhibition we can reach out to people and organisations for photographic opportunities, so if you would like us to write to someone let us know who.

Member’s Evening

Exhibition over but life goes on.

Monday Night is Members evening we need people to talk about their prints, just 3 or 4 prints 5 to 10 minutes the whys wheres how etc and what the mean to you. Might even make it a bit interactive.
