Wednesdaoy 19th September
Ruari Cumming ARPS - 'The Island Dream'

An exploration of the islands on the edge, their isolation & fragility, their charm & allure. We meet some islanders who have chosen to live “the island dream”, as well as joining visitors whilst they explore a Hebridean island. The show looks at the way of life of both islanders and visitors to the smaller and more remote Hebridean islands.

The images are arranged in a series of audio visual sequences. They show, in both pictures & music, the appeal of the Hebrides for visitors and those who have chosen to live “the island dream”.

Last Meeting
We were treated to a presentation from four members of Richmond & Twickenham PS who told how they survived the PAGB award entry process. They each showed us their entries and told us the marks for each print while we all had our own thoughts about the quality of the judging. It was good to see such a variety of images in one evening and I think there was something there for everyone to enjoy.

Coming Up
Next month we have our own members showing us their work including images from Geoff Beer and David Hicks. if any other members would like to show some of their work, would they please get in touch with David chairman@hamptonhillps.org.uk

They need submissions by Friday 28th September at the latest. As always, the subject doesn’t have to be Bushy Park - it can be anything related to Hampton Hill.
