Club Exhibitions

Photographs are made to be seen – but the cost of exhibiting as an individual can be quite prohibitive. Being part of the Brighton and Hove Camera club makes this much easier, and as a result, exhibitions are a very popular feature of BHCC’s activities. We have a dedicated exhibitions team organising the venues, a team of experienced judges to select, and volunteer helpers to transport and hang the work. We have a stock of frames which are loaned out free of charge for our club exhibitions. Club members exhibit their prints at least once a year.

Past exhibition venues have included the cafe restaurant ‘Made’ in North Road, and the prestigious Jubilee Library in central Brighton. Members are free to sell their exhibition prints privately, and the club does not take commission.

Our Exhibitions

The Beach Exhibition

In 2018, BHCC launched a show on an innovative format known as caissons – a brand new exhibition space which holds no less than forty seven large photographs on the very shingle of Brighton Beach, right in front of the Grand Hotel, where they receive a footfall of around 36,000 passers-by a day throughout the summer! The A1 prints are made on aluminium panels and laminated with a weather-resistant coating, which has proved to withstand the ravages of beach weather extremely well.

The first BHCC Beach Exhibition was in the summer of 2018, and another opened on 1st July 2019. Both have attracted great acclaim, even appearing on local TV.

The current show is expected to remain there over the Xmas period and well into 2020, so if you’d like to know more, take a trip to the beach and see for yourself!

The Jubilee Exhibition

February 2019 saw another large exhibition – over 100 of the club members photographs appeared for a fortnight in the window space of the Brighton Jubilee Library, overlooking the square.

The 40x50cm prints were mat mounted, and brand new frames bought and a special hanging system designed for this prestigious venue – the result was a striking and memorable presence for the club in central Brighton’s arty North Laines area.

A retrospective by the late Bill Wisden, who was a member of the club for 64 years, also appeared at the Jubilee, showcasing his life’s work.
