Paul Reas has a long career in UK photography during which he has worked as an editorial and advertising photographer before moving into education. Respected for his gritty documentation of the UK’s working class and consumerism, Paul’s colour work is considered part of the new movement in colour during the late 1980’s and early 90’s along with others such as Anna Fox and Paul Graham. Reas was one of the first photographers to be commissioned by Ffotogallery to contribute to The Valleys Project.

Paul has recently published Fables of Faubus, a 30-year retrospective photobook on his work and the title giving a hint to his love of music.

Currently course leader on the respected Documentary Photography course founded by David Hurn in Newport (now delivered at the University of South Wales course in Cardiff), Ffoton are delighted to bring the two friends together for an exclusive conversation on Paul’s work and career.

Brian David Stevens IN CONVERSATION WITH EMYR YOUNG
Cardiff, September 2018

Brian David Stevens YN SGWRSIO GYDAG EMYR YOUNG
Caerdydd, Medi 2018

Ffoton talks with professional photographer Brian David Stevens about his career and many projects. Brian is based in London but his parents hail from the Welsh valleys where they still reside.

Covering many personal projects in his career, Brian spends long periods of time photographing people and places with an artistic eye and great sensitivity. His well known "They that are left..." : 'Remembrance' portraits of War Veterans’ was produced over a ten year period, and his more recent ‘Beachy Head’ beautifully explores a UK landscape well known for its iconic chalk cliffs but their height also making the area one of the world’s most notorious for suicide.

Brian's portrait of Wilko Johnson is held in the National Portrait Gallery and portrait of Jock Scot in the National Galleries of Scotland Collection.

Chris Tancock : Part 1

Based near the beautiful small City of St Davids in Pembrokeshire, Chris currently works within a five mile radius of his small family cottage which also hosts a gallery with a selection of his work. Popular with collectors and respected by Landscape photographers, the scenes he captures are near-timeless and far more nuanced with the inclusion of workers of the land and details of flora and fauna.
