Regular Monthly meeting in SW London, currently online.
Tonight's Keynote Presentation will be from Vince Harris ARPS and is entitled "A Nostalgic Return to Ghana".
Vince and his wife spent the first three years of their marriage in Ghana in the 60’s and returned there in 2004 to renew their acquaintance with the country and its people.
During their 2004 trip they explored a mile deep gold mine, visited one of several castles from where slaves were transported, were moved to tears at the calm serenity of Lake Bosumtwi, experienced an up close and personal elephant photoshoot and visited innumerable villages to capture traditional life in this wonderful, colourful country.
In the process Vince produced his ARPS panel and one of his photos was runner-up in the Royal Geographic Society magazine’s Photographer of the Year Competition.
Most of Vince’s images were shot on b&w/colour film and later scanned but Vince also had with him a two, yes that’s TWO megapixel Nikon digital camera.
I understand that Vince has produced a book of his Ghana images...A treat for the future we hope.
*Abosomfies are the traditional shrine houses of the Ashanti people.
