The best works of the Gander Photography Group will be on full display at the Joseph R. Smallwood Arts and Culture Centre starting on April 26.

This eighth year annual Photo Exhibit will have 16 presenters.

Each photographer will have six feet of wall space to work with and there’s expected to be upwards of 100 pieces on display.

Getting its start approximately nine years ago, with just a few local photographers, the group has grown to include many enthusiastic members from Gander and the surrounding area.

The group meets bi-weekly to discuss various photography related topics, a practical photo session or in the field application of technique.

The eighth annual exhibit reflects and celebrates the diverse interests of the group’s members.

The photos displayed were captured with fisheye, wide-angle, telephoto, zoom and macro lenses.

Some depict travel and street photography, as well as formal and candid portraits of family, friends and pets. There will also be images dedicated to the beauty of this country’s landscape, seascape, flora and fauna.
