Last autumn Dewi Jones of Neath & District Photographic Society was approached by a gentleman named Chris Gatcum, a writer of books on photography. Chris had admired the quality of pictures Dewi was producing from an Agfa Clack camera on his Flickr website and asked whether he could have four pictures for inclusion on a book to be published by Ammonite Press. After a few checks allayed any suspicions, Dewi duly sent the pictures and vowed to keep silent until the book was published.
This Monday the book entitled â€˜Mastering Film Photographyâ€™ duly arrived. It features work from six photographers with two pages each in a book of 176 pages.
Dewi will be giving a talk with print illustrations at the Neath clubhouse on Tuesday, May 28 at the usual 19.30.
If you want to take a look Dewiâ€™s Flickr account can be seen â€˜hereâ€™.
