Born and raised in Wales, Jack Latham studied Documentary photography at Newport before graduating in 2012 and moving to Brighton where he's now based as a freelance photographer.

As a member of Welsh photography collective, A Fine Beginning, Jack's documentary photography projects have been published in both print and online, and he has just completed his first self-published book 'A Pink Flamingo' based on a long-term American project, also featuring in an exhibition as part of the 2015 'Looking for America' Diffusion Festival in Cardiff.

We spoke to Jack about his approach to photography, his various projects, self-publishing and photography in Wales.


Cafodd Jack Latham ei eni yng Nghymru ac fe astudiodd ffotograffiaeth ddogfennol yng Nghasnewydd. Wedi graddio yn 2012 symudodd i fyw i Brighton lle mae’n gweithio fel ffotograffydd llaw rydd.

Fel aelod o Fine Beginning mae gwaith dogfennol Jack wedi ei gyhoeddi mewn print ac ar lein ac mae e newydd gwblhau a hunan gyhoeddi llyfr am America cywaith hir dymor sy’n dwyn y teitl A Pink Flamingo. Bydd lluniau o’r cywaith yn rhan o ŵyl Diffusion 2015 Looking for America a gynhelir yng Nghaerdydd.

Cafom sgwrs gyda Jack am ei ffotograffiaeth, ei gyweithiau, hunan argraffu a ffotograffiaeth yng Nghymru.
