Once more Dorchester Camera Club has partnered with Arts in Hospital to stage this exhibition to show the variety in the work of Club members. The exhibition showcases the diversity of interests - subjects range from landscapes of the world, to wildlife and nature. Candid street photography and classic portraiture are also popular. Members are always interested in new topics.
Dorchester Camera Club is an active and friendly club with a membership varying in age and ability. Judged by the number of awards received Dorchester has one of the most successful clubs in the country.
Club meetings are held at 7.15pm on Monday evenings at The Brownsword Hall, Poundbury, Dorchester. There are a number of specialist groups meeting at other times who provide help to members to expand their skills and experiment with new techniques. There are also special events and workshops, organised by the club, with some outdoor meetings in the summer.
Arts In Hospital exists to bring arts and culture into the hospital for the benefit of patients, visitors and staff, and to connect the hospital to the wider community it serves. This year we are particularly pleased to have commissioned three DCC members to create artworks for our new Robert White Cancer Centre.

A show of hands - Figurative paintings by local artist exploring connexions between people, and the comfort and support that another person can bring.
'I have produced a series of hand paintings, wanting to explore the emotion that they can convey. These paintings are a selection of hands in different poses and each might say different things to different people. I particularly wanted to show them here in Dorchester County Hospital because I have had family experiences related to both birth and death here, as many others will also have had. I feel it is apt to show them here, in this place full of every kind of emotion, for people to see what they want to in them. ' John Graham
