A MOMENT in time will be captured by a photographic society’s members in and around Todmorden this year.

The Todmorden 2011 project was announced at the annual general meeting of Todmorden Photographic Society, at which president Ian Wright reported another successful year with increased membership.

It was agreed that a new feature of the 2011 annual exhibition would be audiovisual presentations combining images with music or commentary.

Members agreed to take part in a project, entitled Todmorden 2011, to photograph the town during the year. All ages from toddlers to pensioners will be photographed to show the town, its people and the environment in a positive light.

Subjects will show the community spirit of the town and may include people at work, and play, in arts organisations, churches, education, farming, sports, and leisure and retail activities.

The town’s imposing buildings, transport links, public services, pubs, housing old and new, and the countryside around, will also be given a boost.

The finished work entitled Todmorden 2011 will be shown during the annual exhibition to be held in Todmorden Town Hall in November.

Any company or organisation the would like to have a local photographer record events this year may contact the co-ordinator, Geoff Boswell on Todmorden 813860.

The Photographic Society meets every Wednesday at 7.45 pm in St Michael’s Community Centre, Burnley Road, Cornholme.

Visitors and new members are welcome to attend meetings.
