We always eagerly anticipate Tom Seaton’s entries into our competitions, his work is always among the most memorable of the year. He is able to make those resonant images from the most unpromising subjects; a few people on a beach, a disused lido, a window, a door, even a chink of light though a gap in the curtains. Impressive images abound these days and they seem to flick before our eyes, just briefly holding attention. Tom’s pictures are memorable, repay closer study and thought precisely because they don’t just show us what something looks like, they intrigue because they show us something in a different way, often with beautiful lines and tones which delight the eye.

Our new season begins on 8 September, why not join us in our quest for photographs you can be proud of?
