Out There - Canberra Photographic Society's Annual Exhibition

30th July to 8th August 2009

Please join us for the opening by David Chalker, Director of PhotoAccess, on Thursday 30th July - 5.30 for 6pm (RSVP not necessary)

Out Thereis the 2009 annual exhibition of photography by Canberra Photographic Society. The title Out There is designed to state the obvious - that this is a public presentation by the society’s members. The exhibition includes a wide range of photographic images in the traditional sense: observing and recording the world around us and capturing specific moments.

But that’s not the only meaning in the exhibition’s title. It further reflects the way that photographers and photographic artists actively go out there beyond their local surroundings, and often beyond their comfort zones, in the search for images that reflect their personal interests and ideas.

Finally, the exhibition includes some images that might be seen as ‘out there’ because of the extent to which the photographs have been manipulated, processed, combined or presented, imaginatively transformed to extend the image for personal expression or to build new ideas.

Canberra Photographic Society is now in its sixty-fifth year and as such is one of Canberra's longest established community organizations. With its wide range of high quality and stimulating images, this is an exhibition not to be missed.
