AN eye-catching photographic exhibition will be on display at the Herbert Lewis department store in Chepstow as part of a unique competition.

Members of the Chepstow Photographic Society were set a challenge through the summer by social enterprise Vintage Vision to develop a series of images based around a vintage theme.

Vintage Vision offered the society's members the opportunity to meet some of their volunteers, take photographs of the clothing on sale and exchange ideas about the vintage theme.

The exhibition will be held in the Herbert Lewis store from next Monday (27th October) for one month.

In addition to the exhibition, the photographs will be displayed online on the society's Facebook page.

"It's great to team up both with Vintage Vision and with the Herbert Lewis store," said Ben Hennessy from the society.

"Our members really enjoyed the challenge researching different techniques – some shots included sepia tints and other special effects.

"The society is looking to expand their membership and would welcome anyone who has an interest in photography – whatever their skills or experience.

"We meet at Itton Village Hall every fortnight. The next meeting will be on Tuesday 28th October and then on Tuesday 4th November starting at 7.30pm.

"We are a small, friendly club and new members (over 16s) are very welcome, just turn up or email [email protected]">[email protected]."

Vintage Vision provides women with an opportunity to share knowledge, develop confidence and new skills, and to access training and work experience, through sourcing, repairing and marketing vintage and retro clothing.

As well as a shop in Blaenavon, the social enterprise organises vintage themed fairs, and offers workshops, talks and classes on textile re-styling.

A regular pop-up shop is planned at the Herbert Lewis store.

The next vintage fair will be held in Abergavenny Market Hall on Sunday, 2nd November., email: info@vin or phone 0781 816 8955.
