Ffoton had the pleasure of talking with Welsh photographer, educator and, from 2017 the Honorary Research Fellow at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff, Paul Cabuts.

With a long career in photography education in Wales and having returned after two years as Director of the Institute of Photography at Falmouth University, Paul is a respected authority on the development of photography in Wales. We discuss the history and education of photography in Wales to the present day; Paul's book on the legacy of W. Eugene Smith's work in Wales in the 1950's; and his current research at Museum Wales which includes the work of David Hurn.
