Club Announcements - Tuesday October 26th 2021

DCC Website Gallery 

The Website Gallery is currently hosting an exhibition by Colin Harrison (FRPS EFIAP/d3 MFIAP FIPF MPAGB AGAGB FBPE MPSA GPSA AWPF)

Colin's creative style of photography gradually evolved as did his interest in entering photographic salons from around the world.  Rather than just collecting letters after his name, these qualifications stimulate / develop his work and have always given him goals to work for.

He has sat on distinction panels and has helped run advisory days for the Royal Photographic Society and the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain.

His next projects include photographing water droplets using homemade equipment and to produce some audio-visual sequences.

Tonight – Cormac McMullan LIPF on his family photography. Our guest tonight Cormac McMullan is a member of the club. Both his parents and his grandfather were photographers and members of this club and of the Photographic Society of Ireland. Cormac will tell us his and their story through their photography.

FIAP Photo Academy – On Wednesday 27th October the academy will have a presentation by the Turkish photographer Coskun Aral. It starts at 7pm and will be given in French. The presentation is titled “Eye Witness” and will concentrate on Coskun’s war reportage from many conflicts including Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Northern Ireland, the Far East and Chad.

The presentation is free of charge but you must register at this link https://forms.gle/C5Lp4BrbqKPfbyeq7
