Oxford Photographic Society’s ‘Favourite Images’ to go on Display at Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum, Woodstock

Feb 10 2020

A new exhibition by Members of the Oxford Photographic Society (OPS), one of the longest running photography societies in the country, opens in the Cloister Gallery of the Soldiers of Oxford Museum (SOFO) in Woodstock on Friday 14th February.  The exhibition features 50 of the society members’ “Favourite Images” which will be on display until Sunday 15 March. 


Images on display cover a wide variety of genres from travel, wildlife and street to the more unexpected and obscure.  It is hoped that the exhibition will inspire anyone with a camera or an iPhone to get out and take more photos.


“We are really excited to be holding our annual exhibition in this wonderful space – members of OPS range from complete beginners to experienced and professional photographers and this is a great showcase for the diversity of their work”, Ivor Porter, OPS Chairman.


“I am a fairly new member of OPS and putting together this exhibition has been great fun; firstly discovering the stunning Cloister Gallery and indeed the SOFO museum, but most of all the opportunity to display and share these imaginative, contemplative and sometimes funny images – the quality of the work is excellent”  Sandra Devaney, Exhibition Secretary.


“One of the things I love about photography is the fact that a great photo can be achieved by a lucky snap from your phone or, as the result of years of experience and patience on the day”. Sandra Devaney, Exhibition Secretary.


“Joining OPS has given me the inspiration and encouragement I needed to get out and about with my camera more – and I am really enjoying the results”, Adrian Cubitt, Member.


Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum is open Tuesdays to Fridays 1am to 5pm, on Saturdays from 11am to 5pm, and Sundays 2pm to 5pm. Standard admission is £4.50 including entry to all exhibitions.
