In our view
You may have seen Kapiti Camera Club members at different events in Porirua over the years – now’s the chance for them to shine in their own exhibition.
Showing next month at the Bay Gallery, Plimmerton, In Our View will comprise 30 photographs. Most are in frames, but at least one photographer is using an unusual medium – corrugated iron.
The club’s secretary, Meyricke Serjeantson, says it ‘‘gives us a chance to hang our pictures on the wall’’ and show off their passion for the medium. While there are many local scenes and New Zealand flora and fauna – including Ray Lovell’s spectacular 2009 dolphin photograph from Doubtful Sound – there are portraits and also a few arty techniques on show as well.
‘‘ We’ve been building up to this for three months. Our aim [in choosing the selected 30] was to not just choose the standard shots but things that really stood out. One of our members will be using the old salt technique and I guess it shows that people can be artists as well as photographers, there’s plenty of imagination being used.’’
In Our View runs October 1, 2 and 8, 2pm till 4pm, 4 School Rd, Plimmerton.
Top shots: Tranquility, taken by Roger Beckett, is just one of the top-drawer photographs on show early next month at Bay Gallery in Plimmerton.
