U3AC Photo Forum 2 – Looking at Pictures

Today’s session was about understanding, interpreting and enjoying photographs.  Everyone brought along a photograph for discussion by the Forum.  Some presented work of their own; others offered pictures by known photographers, including Paul Strand, Andre Kertesz and Laura Pannack.  The discussions were shaped around: a description of the picture; the formal qualities (composition, viewpoint technique etc.); and figurative and discursive meanings.  The photographs that told or evoked stories got the strongest reactions.  Issues for future sessions included: consent; image manipulation; and photography as art.
