Youngsters and grandma among the inspirations for photographs
PHOTOGRAPHERS in Derby have been busy taking pictures of the people who mean the most to them.
Meeting on the third Thursday of each month at Derby's Quad arts centre, The Togsquadders have been using a theme of Our Lives to get creative.
Charli Marriott, 18, of Chaddesden, took this simple and striking black and white picture, right, of her grandmother, Lilian, 82.
She took the shot in her grandma's living room in Chaddesden.
Charli said: "I feel that my grandma is the most influential and important person in my life so, to me, she is my life.
"I wanted to use something to represent me in the frame without taking a picture of myself.
"To make it more interesting, I decided to place my hat on the sofa next to her.
"All the people that know me will realise that this is my trademark."
Alison Roberts, 56, of Chellaston, photographed her grandchildren.
The picture, above, shows four-year-olds Aaron Gillham and Morainn Johnston playing in a Christmas display at a garden centre.
