“I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique.
Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact to draw a reaction from viewers, or remain in their hearts.”
— Anne Geddes
There will be two different type of CPS meeting that will operate throughout the Spring 2022-2023 season.

February 2nd 2023 - Zoom
Speaker - Tim Gander - What Happened Here
CPS Members will be meeting online via Zoom this week. The speaker will be Tim Gander who will be presenting his project "What Happened Here".
In essence "What Happened Here" is a project about waste: wasted land, wasted lives and the waste of consumerism, Bringing these themes together and documenting them using a resource that is itself going to waste (expired film), What Happened Here focuses on a specific place at a specific time, but is illustrative of the many towns and cities across the UK where the same story plays out
