The RPS Contemporary Group define it as photography that conveys ideas, stimulates thought and encourages interpretation; photographs "about" rather than "of".
Emphasis is put on photography based on expressing ideas; on meaning and purpose, with sets of images to a theme rather than individual stand-alone photographs. It is an alternative to the well-trodden route of photographic salons.
Ken is a renowned lecturer and teacher of photography, based on Devon’s south coast.
A multi award winning photographer including a PAGB Gold Medal for monochrome prints. He is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, and a member of the panel that awards the Licentiate distinction. He has published a number of books one of which “Little Poland” gained him the fellowship of the Royal Geographical Society – see more below.
Ken says "My basic philosophies in photography are:
an image should always say something to the viewer,
technicalities are important, but not at the expense of meaning and emotion,
photography should be exciting, challenging, questioning and a pleasure, and
we should enjoy sharing our experience, expertise and love of photography with others"
Ken will demonstrate the art of contemporary photography, presenting a body of work called "No Entry".
His personal way of thinking about our supposedly "free" country.
You can read more in his article which is based on "No Entry" and was published on page 34 of the RPS Contemporary Journal
