Amongst the guests were eminent photographers Tom Stoddart Hon. FRPS and Brian Griffin Hon. FRPS as well as nearly half of the 102 exhibitors, including Simon Roberts ARPS, who recently launched his photographic book 'Motherland' which chronicles his travels in Russia, and Raphaella Philcox, aged nine, who is the youngest person ever to have a print in the Exhibition. Lesley Goode, Exhibitions Manager has seen the Exhibition take shape: I am delighted that we are celebrating such a remarkable milestone in the photographic world. The achievement of staging the International Print Exhibition for 150 years, demonstrates the significance of The Society and this unique Exhibition in the history and promotion internationally of photography. This year's Exhibition is of exceptional quality, and the diversity of styles and genres very much reflects the ethos of the Exhibition as well as demonstrating much that is happening in the photographic world today. Cutting edge images can be seen alongside traditional prints, so there is something to please everyone. It is an outstanding Exhibition.
