May 18th, 2021 Nico Laan gave a presentation on his work. He uses landscape photography to archive his work. Usually at some height using a kite or a drone. He adds drawings and objects to the landscape. The aim is to create an image that is in balance with the environment but at the same time takes the necessary distance from it. Archiving through photography is essential. Not only because the works are very ephemeral, from a few hours to a few weeks at the most, but also because of the point of view is out of reach. His work is also presented in the collection of WePresent and published in Stirworld. Nico can be found at Instagram.
April 20th, 2021 Colin Harrison presented his work. He became interested in photography as a teenager using a camera to capture disappearing steam locomotives around the world and his photographic style gradually changed in producing more creative and pictorial images. He started entering National and International Photographic Exhibitions and gained the Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society in 1993. He stimulated and developed his photographic work in a goal oriented approach in which different qualifications played an imported role. A similar presentation is embedded.

At the lecture Paul Photography explained how photography can be a way to own the moment you are in and can help focus your mind.
