Chichester Camera Club: A Celebration of People and Places

The Novium Museum

Tower Street, Chichester

24th November 2018 - 9th March 2019

2018 marks 125 years since The Chichester Photographic Society was formed in 1893. It was active until 1945 and, after a four year break, was re-formed in 1949 under the name of Chichester Camera Club. It has continued as such to the present day and is recognised as one of the most successful Camera Clubs in the country, welcoming everyone with an interest in photography.

This headline exhibition, which opens on Saturday, 24 November, explores the rich history of Chichester Camera Club, and its development over the years. Drawing from the Club's archives, The Novium Museum's collection and with contemporary work, this showcase also features the way in which Chichester District has been a source of inspiration to the Club's members across a range of photographic genres.
