4th September at 7.30pm – Viveca Koh FRPS
Our season of weekly meetings starts on Tuesday 4th September when we welcome Viveca Koh who will give a talk entitled “Urban Exploration to Fine Art: a Photographic Journey”. Viveca discovered Urban Exploration in 2009, that led to a series of visits to abandoned mental asylums and hospitals, where she spent much time taking photographs. She began experimenting with texture overlays and gradually developed a different style of photography, which in turn led to a collection of images based around what remains when people leave a building for the last time. This presentation is about how Viveca has developed in terms of style and maturity of vision over the past four years. There will be plenty of photographs, tales of Urban Exploration and the attendant thrills and spills that are a part of this activity, and even something which may or may not be a ghost!
Viveca attained Fellowship of The Royal Photographic Society in 2014, is a member of the RPS Visual Art Group and Digital Imaging Group, and Honorary Secretary of the former. See www.vivecakohphotography.com
We meet at the WI Hall on Warwick Road, Solihull. Visitors are always made welcome. £3 at the door please.
