Fantastic News. Merthyr Band Pretty Vicious that I photographed for my This Time in Wales project are being played every day this week on BBC Radio One.
Photographed Pretty Vicious today for my "This Time in Wales" series. Such talent at such a tender age. They were photographed at The Cave - the remains of the old Cyfarthfa Ironworks. The place was the inspiration for their first recording - "The Cave". You will be seeing and hearing a lot of these guys in the future.
An exciting new project. I am revisiting Merthyr Tydfil and the village of Heolgerrig to photograph its people. It will be an modern day update to my project Once Upon a Time in Wales. The project is supported by Arts Council Wales and the REDHOUSE Gallery in Merthyr Tydfil where the work will be exhibited from March to May 2016.
Came across these talented musicians in the Metro station while passing through Paris earlier in the year.
My film Astronauts, Vikings and Ghosts is to be broadcast by Sky Arts on television in New Zealand.
The Arts Channel is New Zealand’s unique television channel dedicated to the arts.
I do not have any broadcast dates yet.

Rewrite of my screenplay "The Wardrobe" finally finished!
Based on true events, it tells the story of a British soldier who spent almost the entire four years of WW1 hidden from Germans in a wardrobe by two French women.
Rewrite! Rewrite! Rewrite!
In Merthyr Tydfil with Guardian journalist Chris Arnot. He is working on a new book about mining in the UK. We talked about my family history and visited the site of my father's coal mine on the mountainside above Heolgerrig.
It was bleak with a bitter North wind blowing and in the distance Pen-y-Fan iced in snow. Reminding us of the harsh conditions the miners faced getting to work in the winter months. We saw my old home, Heolgerrig House where I spent an idyllic childhood. Now a church/bar? Very emotional visit.
Retired miner, Elwyn Marshall who started work at the coalface aged 14 was a great character. His humour warmed us up after our spell on the cold mountain. Poignant visit to my hometown.
New series added.
