An exhibition of works by the Royal Photographic Society: South West Region Biennial Exhibition
The SW Region (Devon & Cornwall) of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) has 502 members and holds an exhibition of members' work every two years. The exhibition covers a wide range of images including visual art, landscapes, nature, people, travel etc.
Exhibition suitable for all ages.
The RPS based in Bristol is a charity that exists to increase the knowledge and understanding of photography, to promote the highest standards of achievement in photography, and to encourage the public appreciation of photography. It was formed in 1853 soon after the invention of photography, now days it is an international organisation with over 11,000 members.
Education is central to the RPS activities. Many of the members join to further their own photography and to embrace the challenge of working towards the society's internationally recognised Distinctions or Imaging Science Qualifications. The RPS runs competitions, creates and hosts many exhibitions for the wider public to enjoy, not only in its wonderful new Bristol gallery, but across the UK and far beyond.
