Look out for the flyers and posters to be distributed in the next couple of weeks.
Contributors have offered an imaginative and varied range of interpretations of the theme and judges have worked hard to select the most rewarding work for display.
The exhibition will be invigilated by members and contributors every day of the exhibition and will be ready to engage visitors about the exhibition and PhotoBath.
As usual, we will be exhibiting at the renowned 44AD Artspace in the centre of the city adjacent to the Roman Baths and on the corner of Abbey Street and York Street.
All are welcome to the Private View from 6pm – 8pm on Tuesday 25th September.
“I’m more interested in a photography that is ‘unfinished’ – a photography that is suggestive and can trigger a conversation or dialogue. There are pictures that are closed, finished, to which there is no way in.”
Unfinished: incomplete or uncompleted; an image that needs an addition to make it work or complete the narrative; an abandoned object left behind like a half eaten meal, left cigarette or half a cup of coffee; the unfinished experience: an assemblage that needs something more, the process that has something lacking, historical, social or technological aspects or in the mind of the viewer….
Submitted images should examine the theme carefully. The interpretation could be literal, it could have humour, it could have poetic or artistic elements, it could have an unfinished quality that has occurred during the creative process and of course it may have an obscurity that is revealed in the subtext.
Submitted images will be given appreciable latitude with the theme. A couple of sentences for subtext will help clarify the photographer’s thoughts and context and these will be included in the caption with the title. And of course above all, the images need to be engaging and arresting.
Open to all full subscription PhotoBath members
Membership is £30.00 for the year and includes entry to all meetings, events and activities.
PhotoBath group exhibitions have grown year on year and have been one of the highlights of the group calendar. Members have come together for the private view, invited friends and have sold work. It’s a great collaborative effort that really showcases our mutual development.
