A three week monochrome photo exhibition is to start in Colchester next week, with the aim of increasing the popularity of the style.

Suffolk Monochrome Group, founded in 2009, are holding their fourth exhibition in the Digby Gallery of the Mercury Theatre on December 30 until January 20.

A wide range of photos will be on display, including landscapes, portraitures and abstract photographs.

The exhibition includes atmospheric images of the coast including Southwold’s. pier and beach huts.

Moments in sporting events have also been captured by the group.

The group, consisting of 12 photographers, have used a number of photographic processes including the use of a traditional darkroom, digital capture and infra-red to produce the images.

They hope that the exhibition will encourage the development of monochrome photographs.
