Photographic Exhibition - The Harris - Preston - August 2019

Aug, 9 2019

~Do you remember the days when you could take photographs and get them developed at your nearest chemist? It seems like another lifetime ago but there was so much wonder and magic in discovering the pictures you’d taken before they were printed.

These days it’s all digital but thanks to a local organisation they are teaching new and existing members to improve and develop their photography skills.

The Preston Photographic Society has been established since 1905 and it has helped so many people benefit from like minded individuals and to hone their craft.

The society meets every Thursday evening at Moor Park Sports and Social Club in Blackpool Road between September and June. As a culmination of the schedule an exhibition is currently at The Harris featuring work by it’s members.

A number of framed prints line the staircases between the ground floor and the first floor. Two screens show a series of images from the club’s monthly competitions, along with photos taken by society members in The Harris and at events around Preston.

Mick Porter, Vice President and Treasurer of the Society, expresses his joy in curating such an occasion:-

 “It is really great for us to hold this exhibition in such a prestigious location. We work closely with Preston City Council and it feels very relevant to be presenting our members’ work in the heart of the city.”

To find out more visit the Preston Photographic Society website.

The exhibition will run until 23 August.
