An exhibition of monochrome photography will be held at a nursery near Dickleburgh from August 30 to September 30.
Suffolk Monochrome Group will display a variety of images, including landscapes, portraiture, abstract and other genres, at the family-run Blacksmiths Cottage Nursery, Langmere, which is open Thursdays to Sundays and bank holidays, 10am to 5pm.
The Suffolk Monochrome Group comprises 12 dedicated and experienced photographers whose aim is to enjoy and promote the art of monochrome photography, in all its various forms. It began when a group of photographers decided in early 2009 to try to prevent monochrome photography from becoming a lost art, especially in East Anglia.
