Twenty-First Century Monochrome

Twenty-First Century Monochrome

Cliffe Castle Museum in Keighley hosted a special exhibition recently to celebrate the twenty-first anniversary of the Yorkshire Monochrome Group. It ran from 18 January until 13 April 2020.

Fifty high quality printed photographs were on show, all taken by the club’s members. The exhibition had no set theme but was designed to show the many different aspects of monochrome photography and the talents within the group. Subjects range from wildlife, landscapes and architecture to portraits, street scenes and creative images.

The exhibition was held in remembrance of YMG’s late founder and Chairman Dr Don Whitley, LRPS, APAGB, whose help and support over the years has contributed to the success of the group.

YMG is open to anyone from novice to expert who is interested in photography.

Members are encouraged to contribute by showing their images. We don’t judge, award marks or criticise. We just encourage. We have no membership fees, just a £15 per meeting charge which covers the cost of a speaker and a good two course buffet lunch and all other refreshments.

The aims of the group are to encourage photography; film, digital, alternative processes, all exclusively monochrome.
