Masters of Photography
Looking at major photographers – their lives and their work

In each session we look at the lives of one or two photographers (living or dead) and a sample of the photographs they have taken. How did their career unfold, who were they influenced by, who did they collaborate with and what are they best known for? These are some of the questions we set out to answer.

The tutor will be Lloyd Spencer who has a wealth of knowledge about the subject, and an extensive collection of literature and photographs for us to view.

We are a group of about 12 people and if you are interested in joining us or would like to know more about the sessions, then please contact Peter Smith (Group Leader) on 07845 244565 or e-mail to peterglen18@gmail.com. You are welcome to attend one of the sessions for free, and to decide whether it is right for you (there will be no pressure to join).

The group meets on the 2nd Wednesday of every month, in the lower area of the Lord Darcy pub on Harrogate Road (LS17 8EH). We start at 11.00am and finish at 12.30pm. Coffee, tea etc is available and the £6 session fee includes the cost of your drink.
