The Radical Eye – Modernist Photography

At Tate Modern from 10th November 2016 to 7th May 2017

Elton John’s unrivalled modernist photography collection comes to Tate Modern

This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see one of the world’s greatest private collections of photography, drawn from the classic Modernist period of the 1920s–50s. An incredible group of <a href="http://www.tate”>Man Ray portraits are exhibited together for the first time, having been brought together by Sir Elton John over the past twenty-five years, including portraits of Matisse, Picasso, and Breton.

With over 70 artists and nearly 150 rare vintage prints on show from seminal figures including Brassai, Imogen Cunningham, André Kertész, Dorothea Lange, Tina Modotti, and Aleksandr Rodchenko, this is a chance to take a peek inside Elton John’s home and delight in seeing such masterpieces of photography.

Field trip – August 2016

Last month’s Camera Club trip was cut short by the weather but we were able to survey and study the Devil’s Dyke pub from the inside. So we will continue on last month’s trip to Jack and Jill windmills, Devil’s Dyke and view Lancing College from Mill Hill in Shoreham.

 I may have suggested a trip to the Wetlands at Arundel for this month but at an entry fee of £10.86 (or £8.64 for the golden oldies) I thought it best to check the response beforehand.

Date: Tuesday 9th August 2016

So for some relaxed photography and a pleasant social gathering we will meet at the Highlands Inn at 9.30.

For those who wish to go straight there we will meet at Jack and Jill windmills (BN6 9PG) at about 10.15am.

William Eggleston Portraits

Exhibition at National Portrait Gallery, London from 21st July to 23rd October 2016

William Eggleston is a pioneering American photographer renowned for his vivid, poetic and mysterious images. This exhibition of 100 works surveys Eggleston’s full career from the 1960s to the present day and is the most comprehensive display of his portrait photography ever.

Eggleston is celebrated for his experimental use of colour and his solo show at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1976 is considered a pivotal moment in the recognition of colour photography as a contemporary art form. Highlights of the exhibition will include monumental prints of two legendary photographs first seen forty years ago: the artist’s uncle Adyn Schuyler Senior with his assistant Jasper Staples in Cassidy Bayou, Mississippi, and Devoe Money in Jackson, Mississippi.

Also on display will be a selection of never-before seen vintage black and white prints from the 1960s. Featuring people in diners, petrol stations and markets in and around the artist’s home in Memphis, Tennessee, they help illustrate Eggleston’s unique view of the world.

If anyone goes please could they share their thoughts about the exhibition …

RPS Coffee mornings

Dear Members and anyone interested in photography.

It is proposed that we start regular weekly coffee mornings for RPS members, Camera club members and anyone interested in Photography.Выбираем «Народный дом»

The meetings will be purely social, costing nothing more than the price of a drink. However, this will give photographers and their partners if they wish to come, the opportunity to get together and chat about photography or just to put the world to rights!

There will be no formal organization other than time date and venue. If only three people turn up that is fine, if thirty come that is great.

The meetings may also give the RPS and the clubs the opportunity to gain more members.

The first meeting will be in Uckfield town centre at the Mojava coffee bar next to Waitrose car park entrance on the 1st of April 10.30-12.00. Some people may decide to stay on to have lunch.
After two or three meetings those regularly attending may decide to vote on a different time, day of the week or venue.

If this is successful we would like to start meetings in other towns, so if you are motivated to find a venue and propose a time and day elsewhere let me know.

I hope to put together a list of meetings to be sent out monthly.
