Genre(s): Welsh Interest
Creative Photography and Wales explores the ways in which twentieth century photography fixed an image of Wales, which still resonates today.
"In January 1950, "Life "magazine photographer W. Eugene Smith came to Wales and took one of his great pictures--one of the great pictures of twentieth-century photojournalism. Paul Cabuts uses this event as the starting point for a terrific and meticulously researched journey of discovery about our photographic culture. The story he tells is essential reading not just for those of us who enjoy photographs, but for all who are interested in Welsh culture and its dissemination around the world."--Daniel Meadows, Cardiff University
