Isolation Portraits by Chris Pig26 FEB - 15 MAR

"Isolation Portraits" is a project developed while in lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic that hit the planet in 2020. Isolation: time to think and rethink, time to reflect and to put things into perspective.

With the absence of most of the inputs we were used to, everything has a more personal and intimate feel.  Time to face our fears and visualise them in a different way. Time to express our more intimate thoughts. Our personal world, space and habits were turned upside down, social scales were upturned, and values changed. Lost feelings were found and solitude gave an insight into ourselves, our inner fears and strengths. We were suddenly forced to live differently and a lot of social fluff was taken away overnight leaving us with a clear view of our own reality.

“Each portrait tackles a different social or personal issue as well as expressing my personal opinion visually rather than in words”.

Chris Pig is an Italian photographer, based in London since the early 1990s. 

Open View 29 FEB @7PM

Stewards Needed - Help out & earn points

The Camera Club relies on stewards to volunteer to keep the club open and running 7 days a week and to enable members to access the building.

We're currently looking for a few new stewards who can commit to 2 to 3 shifts per month - either the same shifts each month, or filling in for shifts as and when available.  

Stewards receive 25 points per 4 hour shift (equivalent to £25 of studio, darkroom, edit suite hire, or membership renewal).

The Camera Club Stewards have an active WhatsApp chat for communicating about steward matters and asking questions, and will have a key to the Camera Club.  Induction will be given, with support as you get to grips with stewarding.

If you are interested in signing up, please contact Stuart Hull on

Contact the STEWARDS MANAGER for more information.
