Alnwick and District Camera Club

From Here to Eternity was the title of Paul Keene’s presentation to Alnwick and District Camera Club.

Paul has been a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society for 20 years.

His presentation consisted of a series of audio visual sequences, starting close to home with Art or Junk, an amazing collection of colourful pattern pictures which he eventually revealed to be images taken of the paintwork of a burnt-out car.

Next came Belen, a captivating series of imaginative studies of a young woman with a horse.

This was followed by Midnight Blue, a wonderful evocation of an English bluebell wood.

The Life of Swans was an impressive study of these elegant birds, with pictures taken over a period of three years.

Wish you Were Here was an evocation of a day on the beaches of Queensland, Australia, with multiple images of sea and sky and a brief underwater sequence.

Tibet was Paul’s next destination, a place that he visited at the invitation of the Chinese Government. Faces of Tibet was an extensive series of superb quality, colourful portraits capturing the distinctive character of the people, while Tales of Tibet comprised of a large number of pictures of daily life as presented by the authorities.
