Chambré Hardman exhibition at Liverpool Central Library – closes 29th Jan 2016

January 11, 2016

Thanks to Tony Morrisey for this post.

There is an exhibition in The Hornby Room at Liverpool Central Library of pictures from Chambré Hardman’s commercial work.
The exhibition has been compiled by Keith W Roberts as part of PhD.
He has computerised Hardman’s studio registers. This enabled him to discover images of people who had been photographed by Hardman on separate occasions.
There are 20 pairs of portraits in the exhibition.
It has been on since 11/12/2015 and ends on 29/01/2016.
There are further exhibitions planned in the next year. One at Matta’s on Bold Street which was Hardman’s original studio and one at The Williamson Art Gallery, but no dates yet.
There are two websites:

Improvers Group Sunday 10th January


Screen Shot 2016-01-09 at 14.08.01Happy New Year!

Yes it’s time for the first Improvers Group meeting and unfortunately Noel won’t be able to demonstrate Table Top Photography.

Instead we will be having a Members’ Day, so bring along your camera gear and if you have any problems or questions there will be someone there to help.  We will have photoshop available on the club laptop for you to use, so bring along images on a pen drive  and if you are keen to try table top then bring along some small items to set up.

OR you can just come along and talk photography with like-minded members!

It’s your Improvers Group, so come along and enjoy a couple of hours of photographers’ chat –   Joan will have the kettle on at the hall from 1.30!

*Please note that we do not meet in CADWA *  Click EWCCA  for map.
