The North Wales Project
Open: Monday 7th October - Sunday 20th October // Time TBC
Part of the Northern Eye’s ethos is to support photographers making work, a newly formed local collective recently caught our eye and we were impressed! We are pleased to now welcome ‘The North Wales Project’ to the festival’s fringe programme.
The main object of the North Wales Project is to have fun! It’s a new group and finding its way, but determined to form a meeting point for phototgraphers documenting the region.
In an area rightly renowned for land and seascapes, the group will strive to offer a more comprehensive vision of the area and its people. Embracing different styles of photographic interpretation, it will showcase the best work available and hopefully forge a strong reputation as an area producing some of the best photography of its genre.
We are pleased to introduce you to:
Living on Anglesey, North Wales, Robert started the North Wales Project in 2019. He is primarily a documentary photographer whose observations tend towards the minimalistic. His current work concerns documenting the seaport town of Holyhead as it faces Brexit.
Rob’s images have been shortlisted in 2019 for the ESPY Photo Award as well the the British Photography Award. His work has been published and exhibited on line and in print. He is a contributor to the contemporary photo agency, Millennium Images.
Hazel uses photography to create and share narratives, yet is not what would be perceived as a traditional documentary photographer. Her interest in North Wales has been the core to many of her current projects. Hazel’s photography translates her experience of walking.
The contents of her bookcase have become her mountain guide. She reacts to the voices of these explorers, through bringing together her photographic imagery and the re-appropriation of literature.
Philip is a photographer who shoots a wide range of subjects and locations. Compulsively shooting comprising a large body of work mostly around a small part of North Wales and its vicinity.
Philip is currently studying for a bachelors degree in photography.
Roj has lived in North Wales all his life and despite this still enjoys finding new and interesting things to photograph in a relatively small area around his home in Conwy.
Not being a morning person a lot of his work is shot in the evenings and in low light conditions.
