Contemporary (Special Interest Group)
Contact: Dave Buzzeo
Definition of Contemporary Photography
It can be described as a "now" photographs from 1980 to today. What differentiates “now” photographs from “past” ones is principally:
1) Photographic Techniques and 2) Photographic Ethics.
In this special interest group, hosted by Dave Buzzeo, members come together to explore contemporary photography principles and practices. This monthly evening meeting is open to photographers of all skill levels. It runs on the second Wednesday of the month, September through May.
Why Contemporary Photography?
It is more than just a genre or a style; it’s a concept and an expression of the artist at a specific moment that is then processed and presented as a photograph. It is for people who are unafraid to think outside the box. See examples.
Meeting are conducted digitally via Zoom. To participate you will need a computer with a microphone and camera, or a smart tablet. You must pre-register to receive the link to the Zoom meetings.

The facilitator makes sure that the reference material is readily available. The reference material need not be a book, it could be a video, a movie or anything else that relates to the topic under discussion.
Meetings are held online second Wednesday of the month (September to May) from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
