Local photographers from the ‘Better Pictures’ group are holding a free exhibition of their work titled ‘Movement, Shadows and Silhouettes’.

It is taking place at Watermans Arts Centre, High St, Brentford from 3 June until 24 June. Many of the photographers will be at the Watermans between 1pm and 3 pm on 3 June when you can have a chat with them about their work.

The ‘Better Pictures’ photographers meet regularly to practice and improve their skills as well as holding photographic outings in Hounslow, Chiswick, Richmond and further afield; sharing and appraisal of work and, of course, socializing over food and drink.

The photographs in the exhibition were all taken around London by members of the group which originated in a Hounslow Adult Education class. The students, local photographers of all ages and backgrounds, formed ‘Better Pictures’ as an informal and friendly way of continuing to improve their photographic ability.

The works in this exhibition aim to convey the fun and enjoyment of photography shared by the group. The pictures displayed represent this year’s theme of Movement, Shadows and Silhouettes.

Exhibiting photographers are:-

Rachel Eglinton Paul Franklin Amanda Kuijvenhoven
Mike Lawton Alex Maddox Mando Mendolicchio
Beatriz Pullin Pascale Rozand-Jacob

Many of the ‘Better Pictures’ photographers have had their photographs presented in public exhibitions and some have even won awards for their work. You can find out more about Better Pictures, and view some more of their photographs, on the website – new members always welcome.

The exhibition is made possible by the support of the London Borough of Hounslow, Creative People and Places and the Watermans Arts Centre.
