Communication

One of the most important things in our human world as well as in the world of nature is communication. When people are communicating - with partner, friend, neighbour or even with the dog or cat – there is an immediate reaction.

Communication has also to do with motivation, with waking up feelings. The photography presented in an art-gallery in Enns (the oldest town of Austria) which has been chosen as the place of communication of this Kameraklub Bilderbank Exhibition is reflecting the subject COMMUNICATION in all possible facets. The collection of mostly black and white photos will be presented this year in one gallery in Hungary and one gallery in Romania.

Represented is communication between old and young, between human beings and animals, from a father’s hands with the baby in the pre-natal stage, and communication from life to death. Most of the exhibited photographs are from Photographic Society of America ( PSA) -photographers including Derek Slattery, APSA, PPSA,from Switzerland; Joseph Vella, APSA,Malta; Guy Samoyault, APSA, EPSA,France; Jakab Tibor, Romania; and Manfred, FPSA, and Hermine Gsteu, Austria. The 80th Int. KKL-BB-Exhibition will reflect the subject COMMUNICATION, which is an actual issue all the time and the collection will include b&w and color-prints. The Exhibition will take place in the Gallery THEATERL in Perg, Upper-Austria and will be opened in April 2007.

The Kameraklub Bilderbank was founded in 1987 by Manfred Gsteu, member of the Kameraklub Linz, one of the oldest photography clubs of Austria. This unique archive comprises more than 4000 examples of photographers worldwide, from a total of 70 countries. There are approximately 20 themes represented including life, sports, landscape, wildlife, portrait, experimental/digital photography, man in his working environment, children and the environment, etc. In addition there are 30 photo collections of photographic clubs and societies plus some international photographers are included as well as the collection of the Best of PSA International Representatives.

Philosophy of the Bilderbank

Photography is a common medium and platform, which can overcome almost all barriers. It is an international language which can be understood by everybody and images are constant documents of events and emotions which can be transported across all borders and continents. The photos of the Bilderbank show viewers unknown living areas and their people plus explain how life can be. With the photographs of the Bilderbank and of exhibitions taking place in many countries of the world, a cultural exchange is taking place as traditions and mentalities from foreign countries are brought to viewers.

DIE KAMERAKLUB BILDERBANK -

BRÜCKENBAUEN MIT BILDERN AUS ALLER WELT

Die KKL-Bilderbank wurde im Jahre 1987 vom Ausstellungsleiter des Kameraklub LINZ , Manfred Gsteu aus Enns gegründet und umfasst derzeit über 4000 fotografische Werke von über 1000 Fotografen aus 70 Ländern der Welt. Rund 20 Themenbereiche die den Menschen in seiner Umwelt über Sport-, Landschafts-; Reise-, Tierfotografie bis zur experimentellen Fotografie aufzeigen, sind in der Bilderbank enthalten sowie 30 Bilder-Kollektionen von mehreren Fotoklubs und Fotovereinigungen und Partnerklubs des KKL aus verschiedenen Ländern der Welt.

Die Philosophie der KKL-Bilderbank

Die Fotografie bietet ein Medium, eine gemeinsame Platform, die fast alle Barrieren überwinden kann. Die Fotografie ist eine internationale Sprache, die jeder verstehen kann und die Fotos sind bleibende Aufzeichnungen von Ereignissen und Gefühlen, die über alle Grenzen und Kontinente hinweg transportiert werden können. Bilder dokumentieren, Bilder geben Eindrücke und Gefühle wieder. Sie zeigen uns unbekannte Lebensräume und deren Bewohner. Sie erklären uns, wie das Leben hier und anderswo ist. Mit den Werken der Bilderbank und deren Ausstellungen werden damit Kulturen, Traditionen und Mentalitäten ausgetauscht.

Die bisher 75 Int. KKL-BB-Ausstellungen in mehreren Ländern der Welt haben viele Besucher in die Galerien gebracht und grosse Begeisterung ausgelöst.

Bei der 76. und 77. Int. Kamerkaklub-Bilderbank-Ausstellung in Rumänien und Ungarn, die ab Juli 2006 bis November 2006 starten, werden Werke zum Thema KOMMUNIKATION von internationalen Fotografen präsentiert. Diese Ausstellungen werden in Zusammenarbeit mit dem internationalen Fotografen Jakab Tibor aus Rumänien, der Vertreter der Photographic Society von Amerika für Rumänien ist und schon einige Ausstellungen für die KKL-BB in den 2 Ländern organisiert hat, arrangiert. Dazwischen werden 2 virtuelle Ausstellungen, die 78. und 79. Int. KKL-BB-Ausstellung in der website von Fritz Shih,  Vertreter der Photographic Society von Amerika für Taiwan gezeigt, zum einen eine Kollektion von Indischen Fotografen und zum anderen eine Kollektion von argentinischen Fotografen – siehe unter website , http://fritzshi.myweb.hinet.net/

Beim Ausstellungszyklus KOMMUNIKATION eichen die Fotos von Kommunikation zwischen Jung und Alt, zwischen Mensch und Tier, zum werdenden Leben und zu den Verstorbenen oder durch bloßes Händereichen. Auch verschiedene Lebensbereiche werden aufgezeigt. Die Fotos in Schwarz-Weiss und Farbe stammen von Fotografen aus Ländern wie Taiwan, Phillippinen, Singapur, Rumänien, Malta, Frankreich, Schweiz, Österreich, die ihre Werke der Kameraklub-Bilderbank zur Verfügung gestellt haben.

Im Jahr 2007 wird diese interessante und sehr aktuelle Kollektion von rund 50 Fotos noch 2Mal in Österreich präsentiert werden, u.a. bei den Kronstorfern Kulturtagen, die im Okt. jeden Jahres stattfinden.

BEST OF PSA International Representatives – Exhibition in Singapore in Dec. 2003

Catalog with publication of your print

Dear friend,

With great pleasure I am informing you that you will get a catalog of the

COMBINED EXHIBITION OF SINGAPORE COLOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY MEMBERS’ WORKS and PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY OF AMERICA’S INTERNATIONAL REPRESENTATIVES

As you know in October 2000, the idea of BEST OF PSA-IRs’ was initiated by me and Fritz Shih, PSA-IR of Taiwan. The project was very well supported by PSA-IRs’ from various countries and also by the PSA. Just recently I have got a new contribution of 2 prints from the PSA-IR of Argentina, Mr. Amleto Bocci, which will be forwarded to the next exhibition of this collection.

A total of 94 prints from 47 PSA-IRs’ were collected and the 1st Exhibition was held in the National Gallery of Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei in March 2002. Thanks to the PSA the 2nd exhibition was held at the 2003 PSA Int. Conference and Exhibition, Houston, Texas in Sept. 2003.

Knowing the PSA-IRs’ from Singapore personally very well, especially Mr. Tan Lip Seng, Eric Goh and others based on my presentation of the Kameraklub-Bilderbank-collection in Singapore in Oct. 2001 I have asked them if it will be possible to organise the 3rd Int. Exh. of the BEST OF PSA-IRs’ after the Exhibition at the PSA-Conference in Texas.

The 4th Int. Exh. of the BEST OF PSA-IRs’ will be held in Oct. 2004 in Hungary. Mr. Jakab Tibor, PSA-IR of Romania will organise this exhibition in a famous Gallery in Hungary, the Gallery "Mora Ferenc Muvelodesi Kozpont" in Kiskunfelegyhaza.

Our friend Jakab has already organised an int. KKL-Bilderbank-Exhibition in this gallery in 2002, which was visited by many people. After this exhibition Jakab has presented the collection of the KKL-BB to various photographic-clubs and so this collection was “moving” at various places.

I do hope that with this catalog, donated by our Singapore photographers and PSA-IRs’ you will be happy.

With my best personal wishes

(Nature Freinds Kulmbach)

We are a small group of enthusiastic photo amateurs and do our haobby above all because we love photography.

The photo group is part of the Nature Friends local group Kulmbach and on top of this it is active in the association of Nature Friends in Bavaria and on a national and international basis. The group evenings taking place regularly are for the group members' exchange of experience, photo reflection and photo discussion, photograhical training and for the preparation of slide presentations and photo exhibitons. Beside the group evenings there are also photo excursions as well as common photo trip and journeys.

The photo group has a critical look at all areas of photography. The subject nature and environment is preferred in the photographical work - how should it be expected differently of "Nature Friends photographers". Since the members of the photo group see photography as a change to their daily business, there is no pressure but pleasure for photography and gatherings.

Our club evenings are regularly every 14 days, on Thurdays in our club meeting place, located Kressenstein 17, (in the rooms of driving school) at 7:30 p.m.

We sponsor an annual PSA specially recognized and FIAP patronized multi-divisional international exhibition, the TAIPEI INTERNATIONAL SALON OF PHOTOGRAPHY, since 1977, aiming to promote the exchange of photographic art and to enhance international friendship. In addition, we have been inviting well known photographers and photo-groups the world over to participate in our TAIPEI INTERNATIONAL PHOTO EXHIBITION since 1992. This exhibition is held annually in the National Gallery of Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei with our own members works included as well.

Our monthly PST Journal, also known as "PHOTO TAIPEI", a well printed and illustrated monthly publication for members with vivid color reproductions and richly written articles, has been termed one of the best regularly published members' journals in the world. Included in this publication also were some of the best works of our exhibitions during the year.

The works of the TAIPEI INTERNATIONAL PHOTO EXHIBITION are also illustrated in the "PHOTO TAIPEI" monthly to extend the effects of the exhibition.

Once a year, PST invites various photographic societies in Taiwan to participate in a joint photographic exhibition locally.

Twice a year, we hold a PHOTOGRAPHIC SEMINAR for members and biweekly, we conduct members field trips with models, actresses and singers for outdoor shootings. Pictures taken for these sessions were encouraged to participate in our monthly or assigned subject competitions.

Once a week, on Wednesday evening, we invite experts and scholars to give lectures in our PHOTOGRAPHIC ACTIVITIES CENTER. The members works for different contests and exhibition are often selected by a panel of judges at this center.
