As part of 40:40 Vision, a year long programme of exhibitions, events and projects marking our 40th anniversary, Ffotogallery is proud to present Ffotoview. The exhibition is a celebration of Welsh and Wales-based photographic talent, including work from 12 selected artists on www.ffotoview.org, an online calendar unveiling a new featured artist each month.

From eco-villages in West Wales to empowering images of Muslim women, the landscapes and communities of the south Wales’ valleys to the experiences of refugees and asylum seekers in Cardiff, Ffotoview explores different perspectives on life in contemporary Wales and various approaches to photography in a digital age.

The exhibition is at 29 Castle Street, Cardiff, in the space being developed into Ffotogallery’s new city centre venue. Ffotoview is timed to coincide with the National Eisteddfod in Cardiff and celebrates the diversity and quality of Wales’ photographic talent.

Since its inception 40 years ago, Ffotogallery has been at the forefront of developing a contemporary photographic culture in Wales through our commissioning and presentation of new work in exhibitions and at international festivals and events, and our support for emerging photographic and lens-based artists.

We are excited to be able to invite you to view the Ffotoview exhibition at our new space, which we are currently fundraising to develop over the next year.

Ffotoview sets the scene for the next phase of Ffotogallery’s work, in which a new generation of photographers and lens-based artists will emerge at a time when we increasingly receive and present creative content across both physical and virtual platforms.

At the Ffotoview exhibition preview on Thursday 2 August 2018, David Drake will reveal more about Ffotogallery’s plans for its new city centre base, and the 40th anniversary fundraising campaign for fit out and development of this new international centre for photography in the heart of Cardiff.
