    Tonight Wantage Camera Club welcomes Benedict Brain, photographer, journalist, and until recently editor of 'Digital Camera Magazine'. As a journalist he met and interviewed some of the world’s greatest photographers, and produced articles on a wide range of photography. He currently writes a regular column 'The Art of Seeing' for Digital Camera magazine.

    His illustrated talk explores ways of looking at the world from a wide range of styles and approaches, and is more concerned with why an image was taken than how (although that can be discussed too).

    For a preview of Benedict's work see https://www.benedictbrain.com/. For more information about the club's programme see http://wantagecameraclub.co.uk/.

    All visitors very welcome. The visitor fee is £3 at the door. Doors open at 7 pm.
