pictureNow Exploring photography as a creative, expressive medium

16/06/2017 About 1 minute
pictureNow is a social group for anyone interested in photography as a creative, expressive medium, who is inspired by great photographs or intrigued by the paradoxes of the photographic image.

Whether film or digital, small or large, sharp or fuzzy, Process or idea-driven, still or moving, we explore the image and its message.

The group holds monthly face-to-face meetings in Chelmsford, Essex, UK, to hear photographers/artists talk about their projects and to look at each others' work in a supportive, exploratory and non-competitive way. We publish a newsletter containing news, views and opportunities centred around but not limited to Essex and east London.

Our aims are to:

- inspire photographers and artists working with photography
- distribute information about events, exhibitions, books and open projects
- disseminate and discuss photographic work
- network with others
- share ideas and skills
- work collaboratively
- spread good practice

The group welcomes all those interested in photographic images to join us physically or virtually. We are not a formal membership organisation and we don't have commercial affiliation, but we raise money through our events so that the group is self-funding and sustainable.

Please see the website for details of our next meeting which is on Monday 3rd July, Writtle College, 6.45pm (£3 donation, students free).
