Competition Meeting Wed. 10th June ’09

Over 50 members and guests arrived for our competition meeting (set subject ‘Vertical Lines’), and with over 120 prints and digital images to be judged by our overseas guest judge – Tony Bridge from New Zealand – there was no time for dithering!  First of all, though, we congratulated Nicole Palmer who has been awarded two months as ‘Artist in Residence’ in Paris – offered by the SA Arts Association. She fully deserves this accolade and trust she will have a magnificent time.

Tony Bridge is on his second visit to SA, and we were very happy that he agreed to do judging duties on the evening.  It was quite stressfull to be the only judge, and we thank him for his input.  Steve has posted results elsewhere on the blog.  After tea, Tony showed us a few of his audio-visuals showing the dramatic landscapes of New Zealand – he is a master of the ‘big landscape’.  He also spoke about ‘The 7 pictures on your coffin’ … an exercise where a photographer selects 7 of his own pictures which would represent him at his funeral.  Obviously the pictures might still change before the photographer’s demise, but it is an interesting project none the less!  Tony kept up the pace, and we very much thank him for sharing his photography with us.
