The Bathroom, by Richard Hall, is one of the pictures that will be on show

Forty-three members of the Sheffield Photographic Society - which at 150 years old is one of the oldest in the country - will show a selection of prints, covering a wide range of contemporary photographic styles, including landscapes, portraits, wildlife, urban, macro and creative images in both colour and black and white as part of an exhibition.

The exhibition, which is the first of the society’s season and will be at the Winter Garden in the city centre, will be opened by the Sheffield Lord Mayor, Councillor Tony Downing.

Each member’s panel will include a short narrative about themselves, alongside their images.

Members of the society will also be at the exhibition during lunchtimes each day to chat about their photography.
