The mesmerising, talented and very humble Peter Jones gave a fascinating talk on his life and work at 3rd Floor Gallery in Cardiff where a selection of his work is currently on show.

We joined a small audience on the evening of Friday 8th May to listen to Peter give a fascinating recollection of his route into photography to record rural life in a ten mile radius of his West Wales home, a thirty year hiatus and coming back to it again in later life. Always on film.

Peter's 'Welsh Farming Community' show is running at 3rd Floor Gallery in Cardiff Bay until 17th May 2015.

Many thanks to Peter, Claire and the 3rd Floor Gallery team for allowing us to record a very enjoyable evening.
