Durham Photographic Society marks its 120th anniversary this year and these pictures show just how much talent exists among the current members.

The society meets every Thursday and holds regular competitions, presentations and workshops and members also take part in community projects and group outings.

The society was founded in 1892 and has run continuously in its present form since 1947. Its current president is Newcastle-born David Trout, who now lives in Newton Hall, and who used to work on the Northern Echo and later The Journal and The Evening Chronicle.

Members come from all walks of life and their interests cover the full range of photographic genres from landscape, cityscape and architecture to portraiture and wildlife.
