Opening of the new photography exhibition at the Trowbridge Museum

PHOTOGRAPHIC models who have posed for portraits were confronted with their images for the first time when the In Focus Photographic showcase opened.

The four-week exhibition opened this week at the Trowbridge Museum in Court Street and will run until June 3.

It showcases the talents of Sheri O’Reilly, Paxcroft Mead, and husband and wife duo Roy and Sue McDine of Semington.

The three focused on portraits of varying subjects, including a period actor, a ballet dancer, and tattoo subjects.

In Focus is the collaboration of works created and curated by three award-winning local photographers, formerly members of the Trowbridge Camera Club.

Together they have 50 years of experience collectively drawing inspiration from different techniques.

Mr McDine, 70, was president of the Trowbridge Camera Club for four years, and his wife Sue, 68, was a printing secretary.

‘We do a lot of work for the Armed Forces and the Trowbridge Museum and were asked if we wanted to put on an exhibition,’ Mr McDine said.

“We invited Sheri O’Reilly to join us and together we exhibited around 60 photographs, mainly portraits of men and women.

“I tend to imitate the art of classical artists from the Renaissance and Dutch periods, like Rembrandt.”
