PHOTOGRAPHIC models who posed for portrait photographs were faced for the first time with their images at the opening of In Focus Photographic showcase.

The four-week exhibition opened at the Trowbridge Museum in Court Street this week and runs until June 3.

It is showcasing the talents of Sheri O’Reilly, from Paxcroft Mead, and husband and wife duo Roy and Sue McDine from Semington.

The three focused on portraits of varying subjects, among them a period actor, a ballet dancer and tattoo subjects.

In Focus is the collaboration of work created and curated by three local award-winning photographers once the members of Trowbridge Camera Club.

Together they have 50 years’ experience collectively finding inspiration in different techniques.

Mr McDine, 70, was chairman of the Trowbridge Camera Club for four years, and his wife Sue, 68, was print secretary.

“We do a lot of work for the Armed Forces and Trowbridge Museum and were asked if we would like to put on an exhibition,” Mr McDine said.

“We invited Sheri O’Reilly to join us, and together we’ve displayed around 60 photographs, mostly male and female portraits.

“I tend to mimic the art of classical artists from the Renaissance and Dutch periods, such as Rembrandt.”
