June 2016

We had a good meeting on Sunday June 5th. It was even warm (and dry) enough to sit outside for a while.

Jo came to visit along with a display of products, with an opportunity to take a look at things and try them out along with helpful hint;,s tips and advice.

Pictures that illustrate life isn’t just black and white

Back in November 2015 we had a visit from Ernielson Limbo.

As I mentioned then,Ernielson is a second year  BA Photography student at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham. Ernielson has been working on a project on The Third Gender. Part of this involves merging portrait photographs of people with the text of things they have said to produce abstract representations.

I said that I’d post a link to the images that Ernielson created one he had completed them. So here is Ernielson’s Facebook page and here is a link to the album of pictures.

They are great!

As Ernielson says:

This body of work attemps to destroy the socially constructed boundaries of gender in the contemporary world. By the own words of those photographed, the images are manipulated and corrupted. Symbolising the refusual to be categorised and challenges the binary concept of gender as well as expressing gender freedom.
A special Thank You to the Surrey Swans

Thank you Ernielson, it was great to meet you. And, of course, you are welcome to visit the Swans any time at all.

December special

December 2015 was an unusual month for Surrey Swans.
Usually there is no meeting in December, but in 2015 we had a pre-Christmas buffet.
The food was provided by the Lion Brewery, where our meetings take place.
It was a fun, relaxing time.
Here are a few pictures:
