Multi Club Print Competition

Alan Denison’s ‘Couru’ won Best in Competition while Loveday Powell was the highest individual scorer with a 20 for her ‘Venetian Lamp Post’ and 19 for Dancer with Tutu’ so congratulations to our star performers and we can all be well pleased with the results. Pity about that one point though. To see all of our scores click

Longtime RNLI champion and supporter, Photographer Jack Lowe is creating one of the largest projects ever undertaken in the history of photography. Travelling in his mobile darkroom (the decommissioned NHS ambulance Neena) Jack is using an ancient process to make photographs on glass as the Victorians used to between the 1850s and 1880s, photographing every RNLI station, to create an unprecedented photographic documentation and a complete body of beautiful, engaging work.
