Ffoton is delighted to present a conversation with the very talented and highly respected social and society photographer Dafydd Jones talking to our guest interviewer Martin Parr.

Having studied Fine Art before moving to photography, Dafydd’s professional career has spanned over forty years capturing exclusive behind the scenes images of the rich, famous and entitled in both British and New York societies working for Tatler Magazine and many newspapers. In this stimulating conversation on his career and work, Dafydd discusses his ongoing love of photography and why his extensive archive is now his focus in generating income.

Many thanks again to Martin and his team at The Martin Parr Foundation for their hospitality. Consider supporting the important work they’re doing in building a unique collection of British Documentary photography in Bristol - and attending the monthly talks and exhibitions - by becoming a member.

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.

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.
