TPS member and judge Gérard Saide will speak at the launch to be held at Cobb and Co starting 6pm.
Graham’s latest work is a personal survey of his 73 years in photography.
Comprising 142 A4 pages, “Closer” will be a must-have addition in the collection of photographers and anyone else with an artistic appreciation.
We all recognise Graham’s ‘Dorothea Lange’ shot on the cover, and I for one, can’t wait to get my hands on a copy and see what’s inside.

The Image Challenge is “Repetition”.
The topic is Photographer’s Retrospective by Graham Burstow
Image Challenge: Repetition
Set Subject: Self Portrait
A Self-portrait is a representation of an artist photographed by the artist. The self-portrait is more than a selfie or snapshot because it is about capturing the essence of the artist’s identity and attitude and personality.
The self-portrait can be considered as an act of introspection, self-exploration or a visual diary.
Consideration needs to be given to background, dress and position, angle and can include several approaches – environmental, constructionist, candid and creative.

The image challenge is “Then and now – Diptych”
The topic if “Introduction to post-processing software – pros and cons of various packages”, presented by Veronica Sorley
Image Challenge: Then and Now (Diptych)
Set Subject: Antique
An antique has value because of its aesthetic or historical significance, and its age, beauty, and rarity. Something may be very old, but uninteresting or very common, and the key is to find something that you can photograph well.
How old is antique, there is the saying, “Grandmothers are antique little girls.” But we who are in that age of life may not like being called elderly, let alone antique. However, what about some genuinely elderly people approaching the age of antique (100 years) with their beautiful wrinkles?
