Artist Talk with Photographer Jeremy Moore
Thursday 8th August, 6pm. Free - all welcome
Aberystwyth Arts Centre Cinema
Landscape Photographer Jeremy Moore will be giving a talk on his work in conjunction with his exhibition ‘Wales at Water’s Edge’ which is currently on show in Gallery 2
Jeremy Moore is a photographer specialising in Welsh landscape and wildlife. Wales at Water’s Edge took two years to complete and was linked to the opening of the Wales Coastal footpath, which stretches from the Chepstow to the Dee estuary. It aimed to illuminate Wales and ‘Welshness’ through the prism of its coastline. The exhibition includes images of the stunning coastal landscapes that Wales is rightly renowned for, but also conventionally unpromising man-made subject matter; industrial locations such as such as power plants, factories and bridges. The project might thus be seen as a social and natural history of the Welsh coastline.
Jeremy is also running a three day photography course in August:
