North Shore Photographic Society

The North Shore Photographic Society is a group of enthusiastic, mainly amateur photographers. The Society aims to help members improve and enjoy their photography through workshops, competitions, exhibitions, critiques, discussion and encouragement. If this interests you, come along. Visitors are more than welcome - we even wine & dine you at the end! (Ok, just tea & biscuits really).

Try before you buy – you are welcome as a visitor but if you are still around after three meetings we will expect a subscription! If you are keen to submit your photos for assessment you must be financial.

Finding Vivian Maier - Academy Cinema 30th October

At the end of Breen’s talk about Street Photography at our September meeting he encouraged members to have a look at the work of Vivian Maier. Her Images of American and French ‘ Street  Life’ were only discovered when literally thousands of her negatives were acquired at auction by John Maloof.
The Acedemy Theatre will be showing a film, from October 30th, ‘Finding Vivian Maier’
A mysterious nanny, who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that were hidden in storage lockers and discovered decades later, the images she had taken are now being recognized as some of the finest street photography of the 20th Century.
Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are reveled through never before seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

I was privileged to see a preview of this Movie and can thoroughly recommend it to you.
