The third exhibition of our Wish You Were Here season is a specially curated group exhibition,  presenting work by some of the most exciting new photographic artists in Wales.

Tuesday, 12 July 2011


We are pleased to announce that we will be exhibiting at Ffotogallery in Cardiff next month as part of the group show 'This Unfolds'. The exhibition will run from August 18th until September 3rd, with the opening night on August 17th. Here's a synopsis of the show from the gallery website:

This Unfolds is a group exhibition featuring a small selection of the many exciting new photographic artists working across Wales today. Engaging with a range of themes and ideas, what links these artists is an interest in storytelling. Presenting a variety of approaches to narrative construction, their work reveals open-ended views into other lives, other worlds, somewhere between documentary truth and fiction.

We will be showing a selection of images from the project 8X's. We are excited as this is the first real opportunity we've had to consider how the project could work on a gallery wall as opposed to book form.

Hope to see you there.
