Lesley Porter LIPF

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the passing of our dear friend and fellow member Lesley Porter on Friday morning. Our deepest sympathies and thoughts are with her husband Stewart and the rest of their family at this very difficult time.

Lesley was a really lovely warm person, a fabulous photographer and much respected by all of our members. She was just recently confirmed as BPIC Novice Photographer of the Year, and she leaves a huge legacy of fantastic images, some of which will be on display later this year at the Belfast City Hospital exhibition. Her love of photography stayed strong throughout her illness and it is both fitting and poignant that her LIPF panel was successful at Mullingar today, where IPF officials praised Lesley's work.

Lesley will be greatly missed by everyone at BPIC.
