Photographer Pete Davis first wielded a camera when he was eleven years old and has since gone on to hone his craft by being an advertising and fashion photographer and was a senior lecturer in documentary photography at the University of Wales, Newport for eighteen years - nine of which he was the course leader.
Known for his large format landscape documentary photography both here in Wales and abroad, the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth staged a major retrospective exhibition of Pete's photography in 2017 featuring work from across sixty years.
Ffoton are delighted to have recorded Pete in conversation with Geoff Young - co-curator at Ffotogaleri y Gofeb in Machynlleth in March 2109 where Pete’s work was part of a group landscape exhibition ‘Rituals of Intimacy’ - alongside work by John Blakemore, Peter Cattrell, Marian Delyth and Aled Rhys Hughes. This conversation was recorded following a morning event where the photographers gave a public talk at the gallery.
See below for a small selection of Pete's work, reproduced here on Ffoton with kind permission of the photographer.
