Having returned to Wales on retirement from lecturing in photography in England for twenty years, photographer Walter Waygood has two exhibitions of his work coming up this side of Christmas in South Wales.

An upcoming exhibition of his work at Big Pit Mining Museum commences 21st August 2017 featuring ten commissioned panels of images taken in the 1970s-1980s forming 'The Family of Blaenafon' display. Also for the first time will be shown a unique collection of mining pictures which have just been purchased by the National Museum of Wales - twenty images will be exhibited forming a body of work 'The Family of Miners'.

All images were been taken on a 5x4 format camera, with later imagery using photomontage and forming part of 'The Valleys Project' commissioned by Ffotogallery in the late 1980's.

In October there will also be an exhibition at Cyfarthfa Castle Museum called 'The Family of Merthyr'.

Opening hours at Big Pit are 9.30am – 5pm daily. Last admission 4pm.
