On Friday 11 September we were treated to an inspirational evening when Ken Scott ARPS told us all about Project Infinity. This began in 2008 as an attempt to take a photograph every day for a whole year, and has continued, as he explained, into infinity, now a way of life. On his first visit to APS he was in the mountains, now he is everywhere. He has thrown away the rule book and urges us to look at everything in our daily life with a new eye – ‘the art of seeing and doing’. Light, shadow, line and colour are very important in his photography, giving even the mundane an artistic quality. Photography is a journey we should enjoy – there are images all around us every day – it is not about the place, it is about the moment.
Ken was an excellent speaker, using many stories and quotations to illustrate his philosophy of making photography a personal experience. Among the many stunning images shown on the evening, Ken showed us some of his family photos and hoped that while we were looking for that perfect image, we wouldn’t lose sight of the need for pictures to include in the family album. An inspirational evening – a definite buzz in the conversation as we left to make our way home. Check out Ken’s website at www.touchingthelight.co.uk to find out more.
