#urbanwales: Ffoton Wales
In 2016 FfotonWales’ #urbanwales tag on Instagram inspired exhibitions of users images in both North and South Wales, in Cardiff and Oriel Colwyn.
Encouraged by the enthusiastic response to thier #urbanwales tag on Instagram last year, Ffoton thought it might be interesting to bring together a selection from 2017 in a new printed Zine – dedicated to celebrating street photography from around Wales.
They are looking regularly at the creative images being tagged with #urbanwales on Instagram and will continue doing so up until midnight on Thursday 31st August.
To help selection of images for the Zine, FfotonWales are delighted to have secured the help of official Fujifilm X-pro photographer Kevin Mullins along with curator of Oriel Colwyn and co-Director of the Northern Eye International Photography Festival, Paul Sampson.
A final selection of images will be made by Sunday 10th September and the photographers contacted early the following week.
The finished #urbanwales zine will be launched in Colwyn Bay at the dedicated zine event on Friday 13th October, the eve of the Northern Eye International Photography Festival weekend 14th-15 October.
So keep posting (and tagging) your creative street photography on Instagram and follow @FfotonWales and @NorthernEyeFest on Twitter for more news and updates on what we’re planning for #urbanwales and photobooks during the Festival in October!
‘The #urbanwales zine’ is launching on Friday 13th October at the zine and photobook event.
