13-31 January 2018, The Gate Arts Centre, Roath
A celebration of photography produced by our talented students in 2016 – 2017
Ffotogallery has believed in the power of photography for 40 years. Throughout 2018 we celebrate reaching our 40th birthday through a series of special exhibitions, projects and events. Some of these look back to 1978 and the development of the photography scene in Wales since then, others look forward to how the making and sharing of images will evolve in the next four decades. We also showcase the most exciting photographers and lens-based artists practising today, nationally and internationally.
Our programme of photography and digital media courses, offered in partnership with Cardiff School of Art and Design, are artist-led and take place in small groups in an enjoyable informal atmosphere. Students are encouraged to develop their ideas through a series of practical projects and illustrated talks exploring the impact of photography and digital media in a cultural and historical context. We provide a variety of modules, from Introduction to Photography: Beginner & Intermediate, to Photographing People, Language of Photography, Creative Web Design and Digital Video.
Ffotogallery also regularly works with arts and educational partners in Wales and internationally to ensure that artists, audiences and participants have a deep and wide-ranging engagement with contemporary photography, moving image and digital media practice.
Ffotogallery’s ambition for 2018 is to create a world-class centre for photography and digital media in the heart of Cardiff, Wales’ capital city. A truly 21st century centre rooted in its local context, offering creative opportunity for people from all walks of life, whilst being outwardly focused and global in its reach and impact.
