Ex­hi­bi­tion in mag­nif­i­cent venue

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Photography -

Pho­tog­ra­phers from the Pho­to­graphic Imaging Co-Op­er­a­tive (PICO) will present their Ex­hi­bi­tion of works at PICO PHOTOFEST held at Thorpe Hall next month.

Visi­tors will be able to see a se­lec­tion of im­ages from some award win­ning pho­tog­ra­phers on dis­play in the Halls of this fab­u­lous build­ing.

In ad­di­tion, visi­tors will be able to roam the mag­nif­i­cent grounds where there will be a num­ber of ex­cit­ing photo-op­por­tu­ni­ties tak­ing place.

PICO chair­man, Matt Popely said: “This event is a def­i­nite first for this area, lots of pho­to­graphic clubs present an an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion of their works, but no-one in this area has gone to such lengths to present our visi­tors with ad­di­tional photo-op­por­tu­ni­ties”

In the grounds of this Grade II listed gar­den, walled court­yard and stone ar­chi­trave gate­way visi­tors will have the op­por­tu­nity to pho­to­graph four mod­els, in­clud­ing Naomi Train – run­ner-up in Miss Peter­bor­ough and Nikita Az­zopardi - Miss Rut­land.

Along­side the ex­hi­bi­tion, PICO will be host­ing ad­di­tional pho­to­graphic op­por­tu­ni­ties.

A team from Tu Danse stu­dios, in Peter­bor­ough, whose bal­leri­nas and latin dance cou­ples will present an ex­cit­ing and en­er­getic op­por­tu­nity to pho­to­graph against the back­drop of this fan­tas­tic build­ing. Tu Danse will also be pre­sent­ing their own cheque for £1200, raised at a re­cent char­ity event in aid of the Sue Ry­der ap­peal.

In the for­mal gar­dens, will be a 1940s re-en­act­ment as the ‘Lindy Hop­pers pic­nic’ takes place. Pe­riod dress in full flow as these per­form­ers pose for any pho­tog­ra­phers wish­ing to add this genre to their port­fo­lio.
