What is the Barry Camera Club?

Barry Camera Club is a group of passionate photographers who meet on Friday evenings (7:30-9:30pm) at the St Francis Millennium Center in Barry. All abilities are welcome.

The Barry Camera Club’s annual program offers members the opportunity to learn new photographic skills and techniques.

Originally formed as part of the Barry YMCA, the club is one of the oldest camera clubs in Wales.

You can find more information on their website.

Learn more about the exhibition:

The photographic images produced are chosen thematically by the photographers and include local interests, digital and traditional shots and fantastic composite images.

In addition to the exhibited photographs, the club partnered with the Baruc Art group who interpreted some of the members’ photographs, as paintings, using different mediums.

The group will also perform an informative presentation on the history of the photo club.

The exhibition will be presented until September 30, the gallery being open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays.

Vale Council Education, Arts and Welsh Language Cabinet Member Cllr Rhiannon Birch said:

“We are delighted to welcome the Barry Camera Club and hope that their photographic images will inspire both visitors and those interested in photography.

“Today, we use cameras in our daily lives to constantly record and promote our experiences.

“This exhibition can help inspire and educate our future generations by encouraging them to use photography either as an interesting hobby, an educational tool or to develop a career opportunity.

“We hope you enjoy visiting the exhibition in our magnificent gallery”.
