Susan Moss



Susan will tell us about her visit to the China of 40 years ago, which is so different from today’s China.  She will show us images from that first visit.

Since then she has visited many different parts of China. In 2010 she spent a very memorable 4 days in Lhasa Tibet where the colourful clothing worn by the people, the buildings and distant snow-capped mountains were a photographer’s delight. In October 2019 she organised her second photography tour to China.

Susan will share her photographic experiences with us from point and shoot jpegs to the present day raw images on her Canon 5D mk1V. It has been quite a journey!
