It is unknown for sure how the Welsh town of Rhyl inherited its name but one theory is that Y Rhyl originates from the Welsh words Tŷ’n Yr Haul which, when translated to English means House In The Sun.

Geoff began photographing West Rhyl in 2006 and continued documenting the area throughout the recent recession years and subsequent regeneration scheme.

He continues to engage with Rhyl’s inhabitants, including those who have had to move from their homes due to the compulsory purchase orders placed upon them.


‘House In The Sun’ is available to view between 9th-21st October and forms part of the free festival content available to all.
