Richmond & Twickenham Photographic Society’s Virtual Exhibition
If the four walls of your home are starting to feel a little too familiar during these uncertain times, then why not escape on a virtual tour of Richmond & Twickenham Photographic Society’s annual exhibition which is running on-line from Thursday 1 April until Thursday 20 May 2021.
You’ll be able to immerse yourself in some stunning landscapes, beautiful wildlife and some thought provoking portraits and street scenes from a photographic society which is one of the largest and oldest in the country. Once again the work of GCSE and A level students at St. Catherine’s School for Girls in Twickenham will be going on display.
The show, which boasts over 300 images, is set in a 3D museum space, so visitors can explore the rooms independently or be guided around the exhibition. It’s free and can be accessed from a link on the society’s website: www.rtps.org.uk
The society has around 120 members from beginners to professionals and new members are warmly welcome. Email email@example.com for details of how to join.Richmond & Twickenham PS’s annual and popular exhibition is normally held at the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington and hopes to return there in 2022. And while no digital encounter can fully emulate the physical experience of visiting an exhibition, the virtual platform which RTPS has embodied, comes very close.
Exhibition Navigation: The exhibition takes the form of a number of discrete rooms. this approach has been taken to facilitate the ease of navigation for the viewer. There are four rooms to visit in total. The Landmark, Charnock and St. Luke's rooms showcase the RTPS members' panels. Each panel has an introduction to provide the viewer with an insight into the author's thinking, it is then followed with a panel overview to show the viewer the images in the author's desired layout and then finally, there is the opportunity to see each individual image close up. The St. Catherine's room showcases the work of A level and GCSE students from St. Catherine's School for Girls in Twickenham.
It is highly recommended the viewer takes the guided tour which takes the viewer around the rooms in the order designed by the curators.
