About Ffotogallery

Since its formation in 1978, Ffotogallery has been at the forefront of new developments in photography and lens-based media in Wales and beyond, encouraging public understanding of and deeper engagement with photography and its value to society.

This is realised through:

  • Exhibitions, print and online publishing activities and projects that reflect the evolution of the photographic medium and its role in the world
  • Commissioning and exhibiting the work of new and established artists and cross-disciplinary practice that responds to the evolving nature of the medium
  • Organising the biennial Diffusion: Cardiff International Festival of Photography
  • Developing learning resources, organising talks and events, courses and workshops to support practice, knowledge exchange and appreciation
  • Providing a creative studio and digital workspace for creative practitioners, collaborating groups and visiting international artists
  • Preserving existing and producing new archival materials and establishing a new library to make them publicly accessible
  • Internships, volunteering and skills development opportunities across the range of the organisation’s work
