Lucy Jane Purrington is a Rhondda-based Artist whose photographic work most often takes on a surreal quality. Her ongoing self-portrait project focusses on themes of identity and mental health whilst at the same time exploring photography as a means of visual storytelling.

After studying photography at Berkshire College of Art in the mid 1960's, Bernard Mitchell began his long career as a photojournalist working for Thomson Regional Newspapers. Bernard returned to Swansea many years later and in 2003 studied for a Masters degree in photography at Swansea Metropolitan University.

Back in 1966 as a student, he started a project to document the circle of painters, writers and musicians who had associated with Dylan Thomas in their homes and studios but that project extended to cover the wider arts, literature and photography communities across Wales and continues to this day. A new book titled 'Pieces of a Jigsaw' published in late 2017 presents a selection of images from his ongoing Welsh Arts Archive project.

Bernard gifted his archive of photographs of artists and writers of Wales to the Richard Burton Archive at Swansea University in 2016.

Ffoton had the great pleasure of speaking with Bernard at his home in early 2018.
