Gallery event
More from The Valleys / Mwy o The Valleys

Saturday 8 September 2018, 11.00 for 11.30 (finishing around 12.45pm)

Join Geoff Young, co-curator of Ffotogaleri y Gofeb and Judith Alfrey (CADW), who has a lifetime of interest in vernacular buildings and their grander cousins, in conversation with photographer Anthony Stokes, to discover more about his remarkable project photographing in the valleys of South Wales.

More from the Valleys draws together a selection from a series of photographs made over a period of more than 15 years, in which the photographer charts the lived reality of communities in South Wales through bricks and mortar, fresh and peeling paint. Despite the struggle to survive in austere times, the occasional whimsy and creativity of the valleys’ inhabitants have found a perfect match in Anthony Stokes’ arrangements of colour and composition.

The event begins at 11.00 when there will be an opportunity to view the exhibition and additional prints over coffee and pastries.
