Join photographer's Ethan Beswick & Robert Law of the North Wales Project, and celebrate the launch of their latest virtual exhibition 'Deffrwch Cymru Cysglyd'.

The team are delighted to be hosting our fourth Espy Talk of the season with Ethan Beswick and Robert Law of The North Wales Project. Formed in 2019 and comprising 5 photographers based in, or with a connection to, North Wales, the project aims to amplify the best in documentary photography from the area. In a region whose landscape images understandably dominate, the project aims to balance the pictorial narrative by documenting communities, people, less-observed places, or re-interpreting common stereotypes. The group held their first exhibition in Oriel Colwyn in early 2020 and continue to promote excellence in regional documentary photography via their social media channels. The group recently presented to the RPS North Wales Region in a series of inspirational talks.

Ethan and Robert will be discussing their most recent project, Deffrwch Cymru Cysglyd, a virtual exhibition responding site specifically to the North of Wales through playful observation. The work tracks the transition of a dormant, torpid North Wales as it emerges tentatively out of an enforced slumber.

Robert Law is a photographer based in North Wales. His practice concerns documentary photography, capturing both rural and urban environments and the people within them. Robert was shortlisted for the Urbanautica Institute Awards 2020, Portrait of Britain 2019 and the British Photography Awards 2019. He founded The North Wales Project in 2019 to encourage and show the best documentary photography in the region.

The landscape and its occupiers are intrinsically linked. Our surroundings, both built and natural act as a framework from which we construct our social identity. This relationship between the environment and the people within is the primary focus of Ethan Beswick’s practice. Prior to studying Photojournalism at Swansea College of Art, Ethan trained as a quantity surveyor, which has given a unique insight into the built environment, architecture, and the impact of materials and processes used to sculpt the world we live in. This fascination inspires the drive to delve deeper into the psychological consequences of urbanisation and globalisation.

The talk will be held via zoom on Wednesday 30th of June, 7:30 pm (gmt).

Ethan Beswick & Robert Law to showcase their latest collaboration, Deffrwch Cymru Cysglyd in ESPY’s online gallery.

ESPY are excited to present Deffrwch Cymru Cysglyd, a site responsive collaboration between photographers Ethan Beswick & Robert Law. Featuring new images, the work tracks the transition of a dormant, torpid North Wales as it emerges tentatively out of an enforced slumber. Integral to this emergence was the recognition of how crucial social interaction, interpersonal relationships and the role of the creative process of photography is. Not only identifying and detailing the human condition, but providing a community and support network for those who choose to participate.

As well as practicing as photographers, Ethan and Robert are also members of The North Wales Project. Formed in 2019 and comprising 5 photographers based in, or with a connection to, North Wales, the project aims to amplify the best in documentary photography from the area. In a region whose landscape images understandably dominate, the project aims to balance the pictorial narrative by documenting communities, people, less-observed places, or re-interpreting common stereotypes. The group held their debut exhibition in Oriel Colwyn in early 2020 and continue to promote excellence in regional documentary photography via their social media channels. The group recently presented to the RPS North Wales Region in a series of inspirational talks.

 

The exhibition will launch in our virtual gallery on Wednesday 30th of June.

 

There will also be the opportunity to hear Ethan and Robert discuss the thoughts behind the show, and their individual and collaborative practice in our next talk at 7:30pm, Wednesday 30th of June via zoom.

Welsh Cameraless Photographer, Patricia Ziad showcases her latest landscape works in ESPY's Online Gallery

We are delighted to announce that our third virtual show will feature the work of Wales based artist and photographer Patricia Ziad, and her series of chemigrams works responding to the landscape.

Patricia Ziad is a photographer/artist and works from her studio in Penarth. She specialises in documentary photography and alternative processes. Patricia has an M.A. with a distinction in Documentary Photography from USW Newport. In 2013 she won the Welsh Artist of the Year, Student Award. She was chair of Women’s Arts Wales from 2015-18. A selection of her work is currently on show in ‘Ode to Anna’ with Phrame Wales in Llantarnam Grange Art Centre and she was an exhibitor in the Phrame exhibition “Everywoman” in the Senedd, the National Assembly of Wales. 

 

Works in the exhibition embody Patricia's close familiarity with the spaces, textures and patterns seen in rural Wales, and how they are resonated in her imagination through the process of using chemigrams - a technique that she has spent years researching and experimenting with where resists and traditional dark room chemicals are used to create an image on light sensitive paper. 

The exhibition will launch on Friday 21st of May in our online gallery
