During our April 13, 2015 meeting, Gaetan Royer and Tracy Riddell gave a Pecha Kucha style (20 slides/20 seconds per slide) presentation on the Hands that Shape the Community Project. The development of the project from idea to exhibition and the collaboration between Inlet Artists and photographers were captured in images. The question and answer period raised local issues including the controversy over photography as an art form, the lack of venues for exhibiting photographs, awareness of new projects for photographers, the difficulties in promoting the existence of photography clubs in the city and the implications of volunteering your photographic talent.

On a positive note, the City of Coquitlam will be featuring photographs on their city banners. Some of our members have photographs up for consideration. Please vote for your favourite images. Transformer wraps were also discussed as a possible display vehicle for photographic images.
The second half of the evening featured a slideshow of the Lion’s Gate 2014 Celebration of Nature Competition. Congratulations to our Tri-City Photography Club members who submitted images.
