No doubt there will be an eclectic mix of work in this catch-all titled exhibition –
” People “.
Should be one to visit!
This is one of my two images that are showing. It is of an abandoned nursery at Pripyat – the workers town adjacent to Chernobyl in Ukraine.
One of my images has been shortlisted for the RPS 158th International Print Exhibition! See it on the RPS site – together with 4840 other wonderful images from photographers from 56 countries.
Graffiti in Kiev
I’ve spent a week in Ukraine; arriving in Kiev, and travelling to the south east, visiting and staying near Dnipropetrovsk, and the surrounding countryside, and travelled as far south as the Zaporozhye region, where I visited a stone tomb, the Кам’яна Могила as it is properly called. There are petroglyphs on the large sandstone blocks which date from the 22-24 millennia BC.
These are far more recent, and definitely more ephemeral, and I cannot interpret them either, but both styles demonstrate the need humans have to express themselves by articulating representations of their experiences in their surroundings, for themselves and their societies’ members to learn from or share.
I’m currently processing a large number of memories of my experiences and much information, and I will have to break this all up into pieces I can manage, and then put them here. But I thought I’d start with a few images of images which others have made, and try and untangle it all.
We know this place as Maidan Square – Independence Square – and the events of February 2014 are well remembered, and these images which others have made of the events of that time form part of an exhibition in the square.
Which are more a truth, a fact, an individual’s representation; the graffiti, the photographic exhibition or the 25,000 year-old marks on the rocks?

For the fourth year running, Ceredigion Art Trail will feature a wide range of artists around the county of Ceredigion.
My photographs will be part of the Art Trail web presence and feature in the Guide, but my studio will not be one of the ‘ Open ‘ ones this year.

An interesting blast from my past…an early photograph…one featured in Towards The West.…a book just published about an early invasion into Ceredigion.
Ceredigion Art Trail is on for its 3rd year, and I am part of it again! Come and see some of my photos at the farm and also at the Gas Gallery in Aberystwyth, and the Town Hall Cafe Deli in Lampeter.
I’ve had a couple of my photos selected for this exhibition in Aberystwyth.
