The Andover Split Image Photographic Society put on an exhibition at Andover Museum entitled “Andover – A Town of Character.” Sir George looks at one of the exhibits with Cllr Jack Taylor, Deputy Mayor of Test Valley and Chairman of the Museum Committee.
“This is the first half of a two part exhibition, with the second part looking at old scenes of Andover alongside the same scene to-day. There are some very high quality photos, particularly of the old pubs in the town centre. There is some real talent in the Photographic Society and they have made us all proud to be associated with Andover. The exhibition is on until July 8th.
The aim of the Society is to provide a friendly and stimulating environment to encourage photographers of all levels of ability to enjoy what they do and to support them in acquiring new skills. Each year's programme of events includes practical skill learning sessions in colour, monochrome, and digital photography, with talks and demonstrations from visiting professionals.
Many of the members draw their enjoyment solely from the wide range of speakers and seeing the work of others. For those who wish for assessment the Society provides a wide range of club and inter-club competitions.
Andover Split-Image Photographic Society is fortunate to have many members who are new to photography. Their enthusiasm for their hobby greatly contributes to the character of the society. This exhibition therefore reflects the broad range of knowledge and skill of it’s membership by presenting work ranging from those at the early stage of their photography through to the more experienced worker. The Andover Split-Image Photographic Society meets regularly on Thursday evenings at 8pm in the Red Lion, Clanville. The club enjoys a varied and exciting programme from the beginning of September until the end of May.
