Writing on Photography
I hope you are safe and well.
I have new articles on photography being published during the autumn. Already available in Offline Journal #007 is Progredior which reflects on the impact of both the pandemic and Brexit on the future development of photography in Wales.
The challenges already faced by individuals and organisations have been significant - to have come through the crisis is for many a major achievement. However, the on-going financial fallout means that it cannot be assumed that it will ever get back to some form of ‘business as usual’ for those who develop and promote photography in Wales.
As well as the challenges there will be opportunities. In this article I outline some thoughts on future activity and how we can all help shape the future of photography in Wales. You can subscribe to Offline here.
I am very pleased that New Welsh Review will soon be publishing my latest writing on the photobook in Wales. In the piece I suggest that photography in Wales has only recently found its own distinct and authentic voice and that the publishing of ‘photobooks’ provides new opportunities for the visual expression of a contemporary post-industrial Welsh experience. Could this represent a significant moment in the evolution of the visual culture of Wales?
I outline previous developments in photography publishing over the decades before considering two recent books Dan Wood’s Black was the River You See and Huw Alden Davies’s Scaffold to the Moon. You can subscribe to New Welsh Review here.
