From stunning scenes around the globe to quirky images closer to home, talented photographers from a Suffolk town are today showing off their work at their 10th biennial exhibition.

It was 20 years ago that Felixstowe Photographic Society first launched its exhibition and the event has become one of the most eagerly anticipated in the resort’s calendar.

This year’s features more than 100 prints, plus an extensive projected image selection with a rolling cinematic show of images on a screen.

Prints are grouped in themes, such as action, landscape, portraits and people, with a special group theme of Unseen Felixstowe, where society members have gone on the hunt for some unexpected and unusual views of the resort, producing some hidden gems people may never notice.

Society president Nigel Rea said: “Much has changed in the world of photography since that first exhibition and who could have imagined that 20 years later almost everybody would have access to a high-quality camera and millions of photographic images would be produced every day and uploaded for instant viewing and sharing.

“One thing that hasn’t changed is the desire to create and produce top quality images and this exhibition gives our members the opportunity to present their best work through prints and projected digital images. For this exhibition, our co-ordinators Jenny Rudd and Nigel Woods have chosen
to present a visual flow of like work with prints displayed in subject groups.”

The club was formed in 1948 for the advancement of photography as an art and a science and currently has 60 members, meeting from September to June at Broadway House, Orwell Road, for a range of activities.

Mr Rea said: “These include competitions for prints and projected images, external ‘battles’ with other photographic clubs, regular speakers and social events.

“We also cover the technical side of photography from the basics to the advanced and offer high quality practical shooting sessions with plenty of advice and encouragement from experienced photographers.”

The exhibition is taking place at Trinity Methodist Church Hall, Orwell Road, Felixstowe, from today until Saturday, open weekdays from 10am to 8pm, and Saturday 9am to 5pm. Admission is free.
