Aberfan: Remembrances of a Photojournalist

The haunting Aberfan photographs by American photojournalist I.C. Rapoport (known as Chuck) were captured over a six week period when he came to Wales on 29th October 1966 to record a photo essay idea he had pitched to the prestigious LIFE Magazine in New York titled, "A Town without Children".

Ffoton present this exclusive video of Chuck's digital exhibition launch at Redhouse in Merthyr Tydfil on the evening of 12th September 2016.
