It was with considerable sadness that we welcomed Mark Wilbrey again to our club on 13th March to give his final lecture to us before leaving to live in another part of the country. We have had many enjoyable evenings with Mark, and would all like to wish him bon voyage and hope he enjoys his new home.
This week, Mark told us about the pleasure he gets in making images by an unorthodox wet process. He prints digital images onto acetate sheets, then contact prints these onto home-made emulsions. Some of the resulting images resemble sepia tones, and other are blue. We were all much impressed by the interesting artistic nature of the results.
In the second half of his talk, he discussed his interest in street photography. He is a great believer in using a small, inobtrusive rangefinder camera to take his street photographs. He showed a number of examples of his work.
