Pete Davis IN CONVERSATION WITH Geoff Young
Machynlleth, March 2019

Pete Davis YN SGWRSIO GYDAG Geoff Young
Machynlleth, Mawrth 2019

Left: Pete’s 10x8 plate camera setup on location in Penrhyndeudraeth, North Wales. And the man himself in his rather special camera black cloth.

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.

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.
