Magnum photographer David Hurn opens a new exhibition 'As It Was' at The Kickplate Gallery in Abertillery.
'As It Was' is an exhibition of photographs taken within the local communities of Blaenau Gwent between 1973 - 1999. The exhibition runs for a month from Friday 20th May until Saturday 18th June 2016. Admission is free.
Ffoton attended the opening and recorded the short video of David Hurn's welcome and talk about the work. We were at the back of the packed small Kickplate gallery (so excuse the sound etc) but were surprised and humbled by David's kind endorsement of Ffoton (around 1:26 on the video).
