22nd February "Searching For Identity" – Richard and Janet Burdon
We welcome Richard and Janet to our meeting tonight. They say of themselves:-
“We are Richard and Janet Burdon and we’re based in Pickering the edge of the glorious North York Moors National Park. We’re drawn to wild and remote places like the moors and the rugged Yorkshire coast, though often venture to even more remote places like the Western Isles of Scotland and the Arctic regions of Norway and Greenland.
We think it is important to find a photographic style of your own and. It’s fair to say that we all have our influences and whilst the last thing we want to do is copy someone else’s style, we are all influenced by the work of other people. In this talk we are going to look at several sections of our work that has been influenced by other people, whilst striving to maintain our own identity.”
