Yahoo groups, blogger and Flickr provide the tools by which the group will share photographs and discuss photography. Meet-ups are encouraged e.g. an evening in a local pub to discuss photography over a pint and a bite or a photography trip to London or elsewhere. Group activities include setting members photographic challenges and assignments.

Detroit in ruins

The Guardian has an interesting article and pictures about Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre's extraordinary photographs documenting the dramatic decline of a major American city. 



The images are superb examples of post industrial USA  and  they give a real feel for the impact of the financial crisis, the resulting landscape is straight out of World War Two.

Devoid of people and hope.
