Macarthur Community College Photography Group.

The Macarthur CC Photography Group was formed in late 2009 by Macarthur Community Photography tutor Debra Pearson. Comprised of digital photography students, the newly formed group met monthly to discuss ideas, their work, and photography together. Their first group exhibition “Points of View” debuted at Fairfield City Museum and Gallery in 2011, then traveled to Narellan and Camden Libraries. 2012 saw new student members added to the group, and a second exhibition “Points of View 2” was mounted at Fairfield City Museum & Gallery, Fairfield City Chambers, and Campbelltown and Narellan Libraries. The exhibition showcased a variety of styles & interests, as well as individual experiences & cultures. In 2013 www.macphotogroup.org was launched – “Points of View 3- Inspirations Around Us” showed at Fairfield City Museum & Art Gallery, Campbelltown City Library and Narellan Library and members of the group also took photographs for the covers of the Macarthur Community College brochure. This year’s exhibition, “Living Culture”, is currently showing at the H.J. Daley Library Campbelltown until the 28th November. It represents 12 former photography students exploring an individual vision of the Campbelltown and Camden areas. Debra Pearson remains as mentor and co-ordinator of the group. More information about the group can be found at their website www.macphotogroup.org
