Location Clarion House, Norreys Drive, Maidenhead, SL6 4BY

The Monochrome format simplifies and strengthens our photographs. We draw attention to what caught our eye. We highlight patterns of light and shadow, or use light falling across a surface to emphasise grainy textures. An effective monochrome is reliant on its composition. A careful arrangement of shapes, lines, textures and patterns can transform your photograph.

MONOCHROME is a touring photographic exhibition created and supported by The Photographic Angle.

For more information see www.thephotographicangle.co.uk/exhibitions
Please check website prior to attendance for latest information as dates may be subject to change.
Disabled visitors are advised to check with us before visiting an exhibition so that suitable access can be provided.

The film, "The Phenomenon Bruno Groening - In the footsteps of the miracle healer", shows the events surrounding Bruno Groening. In autumn of 1949, close to 30,000 people were drawn to the Traberhof in Rosenheim daily. Newspapers, radio and television reported: "It is beyond reason. Bruno Groening heals the crippled, the blind, the deaf..."

Many film spectators reported of a sudden power, a tingling and a current felt in the body. Some even reported of the disappearance of illnesses and pain.

Today, people in the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends are still being healed. People who have endured incurable suffering and addictions.

Everyone interested is heartily invited.

Admission is free, donations are accepted.

11.30 am - 6.00 pm (incl. 2 breaks)
