Up to 40 members are choosing a selection of their work, with a wide range of styles, covering traditional, abstract, landscapes, portraits, macro, monochrome and creative photography. Each member’s panel will include a short narrative on what motivated them to take their chosen images.

There is also a panel of historic images taken around Sheffield. The exhibition, to be opened by Lord Mayor Peter Rippon, will run until Sunday, November 23.

Exhibition organiser John Scholey said: “I hope everyone who sees the prints will find something of interest and, perhaps, thought provoking”

Sheffield Photographic Society is one of the oldest clubs of its type in the world. It is also one of the largest and most thriving photographic societies within the UK with over 100 members including enthusiastic amateurs, as well as semi professional photographers, using mainly digital equipment.
