Tonight, we were visited via zoom by Peter Bartlett ARPS, EFIAP/b, CPAGB, BPE3*,
to give us his talk on ‘The way we were’.
Peter is a documentary photographer who shared his long-term interest in street
photography in which Peter documents as he states both everyday life, the banal,
mundane and the ordinary urban landscapes of Northern England and beyond.
Peter shared with us his past projects, especially the images that he took round
Manchester Northern Quarter which made up his ARPS panel and he invites the
viewer make up their minds about each image and what the story might be. Mostly
Peter’s images were in monochrome and from a variety of locations from
Huddersfield, Leeds, Sheffield to London and Milan.
Peter gave us a variety of hints and tips which were thought provoking and
encouraging you to take time and look at the environment around you.
He showed us that Street Photography does not need to be full body or head shots,
can images that are close up or just part of a hand, or feet.
A very inspiring and interesting evening giving members some inspiration to go out
and try to take images themselves.
