News update - October 2021
Royal Geographical Society teams up with The Landscape Group
We are really pleased to announce that the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) is lending its support to the Landscape Group's new By Degrees project.
In case you missed it in the last news release, By Degrees is an innovative collaborative project to make landscape images at the 45 locations where lines of latitude and longitude intersect over Britain and Ireland.
For more details and how to take part go to the Projects page found on the RPS Landscape Groups website here: https://rps.org/groups/landscape/projects/by-degrees-home-page/
In his letter of support for the project, RGS president Nigel Clifford says:
"On behalf of my colleagues at the RGS, I look forward to seeing an exhibition of selected images at our Exhibition Pavilion or at the Director's Gallery in South Kensington... I would also be keen to explore how the RGS might acquire a number of the strongest photographs to hold in our permanent collection."
This is really exciting news as not only is this the first time in their histories that the two societies have collaborated but, more significantly, the anticipated exhibition will give significant exposure to a selection of By Degrees images. Our thanks go to RPS president Simon Hill HonFRPS who is also a fellow of the RGS and facilitated our contact with Nigel Clifford.
All members of the landscape group and the wider RPS are invited to join in and participation is entirely free.
