The Village, A New Book From David Wilson
We are delighted to have heard from local photographer David Wilson about this new book. Once again he has brought his own unique vision to The Village. Available from November 4th 2021
The Village is a new book from David Wilson and is out on the 4th November, just in time for Xmas.
David says, ” In January 2019 I embarked on a year-long project to document my home village of Llangwm, situated on the banks of the Cleddau estuary in west Wales. Like villages the world over, there is a universal story to be told here.”
David says that like villages the world over there is a universal story to be told here. “That age-old story of community; a very definite sense of a joint endeavour. A sense of a warm and secure continuity of habits and tradition. A feeling that whatever happens out there away from the village, we will prevail and thrive and be happy.
Llangwm is a busy place, with its chapels and church, the pub and the shop, its rugby and cricket teams, societies and festivals. I photographed people at home, at work and at play. It was such an enjoyable year.”
David says, “In 2020, we were jolted by the pandemic. The images of lockdown in the short epilogue are in stark contrast to the main body of work.”
