In our view

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT - By KRIS DANDO

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.
