Travel and landscape photographer Robin Weaver is returning to his roots for a book which offers a fascinating retrospective of life in South Wales in the 1970s.
In ‘A Different Country’, his monochrome images evoke memories of places which have greatly altered over the years.
Weaver began his career as a press photographer on a Welsh local newspaper over 40 years ago and, in his free time, explored the back streets of the Welsh valleys with his trusty Leica to hand.
The former Newport College of Art student, whose work now appears in magazines and newspapers, books and calendars, explained: “I was driven to capture a unique place and atmosphere for no other reason than a compulsion to seal the image of a place that was bound to change.
“What really inspired me were the Welsh people, whatever they were doing. The sort of photographs I was required to take for the newspaper were often staged – very different from what I liked to take for myself.
“I believe that old photographs develop a special character, a unique sheen imbued with the passage of time.
“Looking through these photographs today four decades later I find myself not only in a different time, but also in a different country."
* A Different Country is available from Blurb in paperback and hardback.

The popular arts and traditions both in the past and in the present, are the material, artistic and spiritual manifestations transmitted and created by the people.

Institutionally all these manifestations are present in its current version in folklore, which focuses on the annual festivities to celebrate harvests and others such as bullfighting, Holy week rites and folk customs through time...

Behind my camera I try to express all this art, so that it will endure in time.

Felipe Caparrós believes that a passion for photography combined with our strong style and understanding of light and composition create stunning images for every client. Based in spain/jaen, we have an excellent reputation for creating bespoke photography both in studio and on location.
