Saturday 5th March 2016 – The Photographer’s Eye – An Exhibition of Photographs
Killarney Camera Club will hold an exhibition of photographs in Killarney Library in March , commencing on Tuesday 15th and continuing until the end of the month.
Frank Lewis, Presenter with Radio Kerry will officially launch the exhibition at 7.00pm. Refreshments will be served. The Exhibition is intended to appeal to a wide audience, members of the public, schools and organizations, as well as tourists and people with an interest is the arts, culture and especially photography.
Photographers see the world in ways that are unique, interesting and different and we want to share this view though our photography. Consequently the theme of this exhibition, “The Photographer’s Eye” which portrays how we see the world though the camera lens. Based on the book of the same name, it is “the ability to see the potential for a strong picture and then organize the graphic elements into an effective, compelling composition”. Photography is an art form that requires a lot of mental thought to be put into every shot, but it’s all about creativity and individual style. This Exhibition will show the diverse range of styles of our members, who are all fuelled by a common goal, a desire to take better photographs.
Killarney Camera Club was founded in 2001, and this year sees it highest membership ever of almost 50 enthusiastic photographers of all ages and levels of ability. The exhibition reflects the work and dedication of the club members and we are delighted that many of our new members who joined this year are featured in the Exhibition. Many members have years of experience, while more are beginners but we all improve our skills through the knowledge and experience shared by fellow members and through the club activities.
The club meets every second Thursday at the Heights Hotel, Killarney at 7.30 pm. There is a very wide range of club activities, which include presentations, training and workshops, club competitions and outings. These outings are the life and soul of the club and are great fun, we travel far and wide in search of the perfect shot. New members are always welcome.
Our main charity is the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, and we act as official photographers each year for this event. Many thousands of photographs of the cyclists are posted online for free download from the event.
We wish to thank Killarney Library for hosting this Exhibition and to Eamon Browne and the staff of Killarney Library for their co-operation while planning, organising and setting up this event.
