Dan Wood & Paul Cabuts: In Conversation

Photographers Dan Wood and Paul Cabuts sat down for a conversation on Dan’s work, contemporary photography in the Valleys and Dan’s new book ‘Gap in the Hedge’

Saturday 15th September 2018

Hosted by The Workers Gallery situated in Porth in the Rhondda Valley, this talk seemed a natural extension to Paul Cabuts ‘Valleys Project’ talk at Ffotogallery 31 May 2018 as it promised to explore the ongoing lure of the south Wales valleys in contemporary Welsh photography by one of its own - Dan Wood.

Spookily describing themselves as, “Purposefully NOT publicly funded. The WORKERS is committed to being fully independent & creatively resourceful”, Ffoton couldn’t resist the invitation to visit the Gallery, listen to and record this fascinating talk. Enjoy.

Photographer Dan Wood describes the background, process and challenges behind the 2 year project 'Gap in the Hedge' which is about to be launched as his first hardback book.

Ffoton sat down with Dan to hear more about this large body of work and why the ’Bwlch-y-Clawdd’ (Gap in the Hedge) mountain pass connecting the Rhondda Valley to his birth town of Bridgend was something he needed to get out of his system.
