Danielle Barabé-Bussières, who spoke at our April 5th meeting, has invited any interested club members to attend the New Members Reception of the Eastern Ontario Branch of the PPOC to be held September 5th from 7 until 9 PM at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata.
Just want to ask if you could kindly inform your photo club members and people you know who might be interested of this event we are organizing. I will be present, as I am a member of the executive committee and would be thrilled to see some familiar and new faces. It is mostly an event to answer questions people might have regarding PPOC etc.
If you’re interested, go online to eventbrite and register for a free admission.
Your images for the assignment must be emailed by noon on Friday, August 30th to be included in the slideshow. You may submit one photograph of each element, for a total of FOUR photographs. For details on how to submit photos, including formats and titles, go to our Pictures/How to Submit page.
The next assignment is Abstraction and these images will be shown at the meeting on October 4th.
The featured speaker at the first meeting of out 2019/2020 season will be Glenn Bloodworth:
A retired senior executive from the federal public service and the private sector, Glenn is a visual artist employing medium-format film & composite digital media. He holds a Diploma in Photographic Arts and Production from the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa [SPAO], and a Certificate in Photography Techniques from Algonquin College. Thematically driven by David Thoreau’s observation “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see” and influenced by Hiroshi Sugimoto’s sense of ‘time exposed’, Walker Evan’s optic, and the aesthetic of the Düsseldorf School artists like Thomas Struth and Candida Höfer, Glenn’s art centers on visuals tonally and metaphysically textured, presenting the over-looked familiar and vernacular, encouraging viewers to comprehension and challenging them to insight, not only of what they are seeing but how they see. Glenn’s works are held in several public and private collections in Canada and abroad, including the City of Ottawa Art Collection.
