SHEFFIELD Photographic Society hold is its annual Perspectives exhibition in the Winter Garden next week.

Work of 41 members will be displayed, and some will be on hand each day to chat about their images, aspects of photography and the society, which was established in 1864 and is one of the oldest clubs of its type in the world.

It is also one of the largest and most thriving photographic societies in the UK with more than 100 members, including enthusiastic amateurs, as well as semi-professional photographers, using mainly digital equipment.

For several members, it will be the first time their work has been given a public airing.

The exhibition will be opened on Monday at noon by the Lord Mayor, Coun Sylvia Dunkley, and runs until the following Sunday.

Sheffield Photographic Society also stages an exhibition in February at the 1554 Gallery at Sheffield Cathedral.
