The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Val Glenny

Each year, members of Sheffield Photographic Society present their work in the exhibition Perspectives. Usually held in Sheffield's Winter Garden for a fortnight in November, this year it's taking place online instead with a digital-only exhibition.

For its sixteenth edition in 2020, 29 members of the society have taken part, each choosing up to six of their own photos to display without any judging or selection involved. Expect to see a wide range of photography on display from street photography to natural history, landscapes to portraiture, architecture to travel. There's also a collection of old Sheffield snaps by the society's long-serving members Ray Brightman and Gerry Sweetman.

Founded in 1864, Sheffield Photographic Society is one of the oldest photographic clubs in the world. It's also one of the largest in Britain, averaging 100 members. Each year it programmes a season of lectures, competitions, members' evenings and photography outings, as well as the Perspectives exhibition.
