Nikon Owner West Midlands Group Photo-outing
The Library of Birmingham, Centenary Square, Birmingham
Friday, 14th March
Peter Jepson, who kindly arranges the meetings and photo-outings for the very popular Nikon Owner West Midlands Group, would like to invite everyone to a unique photographic opportunity on Friday, 14th March at the new Library of Birmingham, Centenary Square, Birmingham.
The new Library of Birmingham is a major new architectural and cultural destination. It is housed in a striking post-modern, high-tech building constructed between 2010 and autumn 2013. Both the outside façade and the interior are extraordinary examples of contemporary architecture, which lends itself to the creation of stunning photographic images. On behalf of the Nikon Owner West Midlands Group, Peter Jepson contacted the library who have confirmed that they encourage photography and they have no issues with a small group of photographers viewing the building and taking images.
The library is said to have rewritten the book for 21st century public libraries and has provided a showcase for the city’s internationally important collections of archives, photography and rare books. The formal opening of the building on September 3rd 2013 was conducted by Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who survived an assassination attempt, and who now lives in Birmingham. Before unveiling a plaque, she said “Let us not forget that even one book, one pen, one teacher can change the world”.
Venue: The Library of Birmingham, Centenary Square, Cambridge St, Birmingham, West Midlands B1 2EP
Time to meet: 12.00 p.m. at the entrance to the Library
Directions: The library is situated on the west side of the city centre at Centenary Square, beside the Birmingham Rep and Baskerville House, between Broad Street and Cambridge Street
