1066 Mono is a Black and White photographic group who meet to show and discuss our printed film or digital images and  was founded about 15 years ago in Hastings. We are a non-competitive group and only show prints, we do not show DPI'S or colour.


We now meet at  Battle Memorial Halls, St Valerie room on the last Tuesday of each month between 7.30 and 9.45pm(other than September and December) and invite any members of BPS to attend for some visual entertainment and or bring some of their own Black and White prints to describe and talk about. Prints do not have to be most recent nor necessarily mounted. We have a monthly theme for images but is not strictly adhered to, so any subject welcomed.

Congratulations to Steve Barnes on being awarded his ARPS following the submision of the 15 image panel (as below) in the Fine Arts Section.

Steve says," During 2018 I photographed the De La Warr building in Bexhill , a masterpiece of British Modernist Achitecture. I wanted to re-envisage the building in a more unusual minimalist abstract way so that the photographs emulate early sketches and drawings of the architects Mendelshon and Chermeyheff"

The winner in Party night's Tomes Trophy for Humerous Image was Mike Fermor with
Oh....I need to lose weight
Congratulation to John Lethbridge on being awarded LRPS for his recently presented panel
