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.

MICHAEL CHRISTOPHER BROWN IN CONVERSATION WITH RICHARD SAMBROOK
BRISTOL, FEBRUARY 2018

MICHAEL CHRISTOPHER BROWN YN SGWRSIO GYDAG RICHARD SAMBROOK
Bryste, Chwefror 2018

Michael Christopher Brown is an American photojournalist and documentary photographer who immersed himself in travel and covering foreign assignments - including major conflict zones - professionally from 2006. Michael has been a contributing photographer at National Geographic since 2005 and joined Magnum Photos as a nominee in 2013 and was an associate from 2015 until June 2017.

Probably his best known work to date is his monograph 'Libyan Sugar' which won the Paris Photo First Photobook Award and the International Center of Photography's 2017 Infinity Award for Artist's Book. This unique book demonstrated his skill in using primarily an iPhone to photograph the Libyan Revolution from 2011-2012 where he covered several battles, was ambushed several times and injured twice. He survived the same mortar attack that killed his close friend and photojournalist colleague Tim Hetherington.

Ffoton spoke to Michael in early 2018 during a trip to the UK to plan his next book on Cuba where, as part of his 'Paradiso' project, he's been documenting the electronica music and youth scene in Havana. Whilst working there, he witnessed the national grieving and had exclusive access to the funeral cortege of the late leader Fidel Castro as it travelled from Havana to his grave in Santiago. Michael is currently working on a large documentary project on native Americans.

We were pleased and grateful to have Professor Richard Sambrook conduct the interview - an experienced journalist and ex-Director of News at the BBC who oversaw their coverage of the 2003 Iraq conflict. And thanks also to Martin and his team who kindly accommodated us for the recording on a busy day at The Martin Parr Foundation in Bristol.

Photographers Roger Tiley, Emyr Young and Bernard Mitchell

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.

See below for a small selection of Bernard's work, reproduced here on Ffoton with kind permission of the photographer.
