Dark Deeds in Ceredigion – by photographer David Wilson

How a landscape starred in a crime series by DAVID WILSON

I hope that this latest newsletter finds you and your family well, and that you are coping in these unusual times.

In 2016 I was set a challenge: to produce a book of photography of a crime scene. Admittedly that crime scene was vast – Ceredigion in West Wales.         

The crime drama Hinterland (and the Welsh-language version, Y Gwyll) has achieved international acclaim.

As a thank you to that landscape – the best “extra” they could ever have wished for – one of the producers, Ed Talfan, asked me to compile a book as homage to an area of Wales that the cast and crew had fallen in love with.

A selection of photographs from the project can now be viewed in a new gallery on my website. 

Thank you for continued support and please do keep safe. 

About David Wilson

My love of photography began when I bought my first camera aged 17.  I spent many carefree days riding around Pembrokeshire on my motorbike with my 35mm Canon and an Ordnance Survey map, learning to take photographs while exploring the coast and countryside. Due to my habit of colliding with objects, the motorbike is now history, but my passion for photography is as strong as ever.

The landscape of Pembrokeshire and Wales provides an idyllic playground for a black-and-white landscape photographer. In my work I seek to capture the country’s many different faces: the windswept coast of midwinter, a derelict farm cottage, the faded grandeur of a rural chapel, or the rugged contours of a mountain pass. The story of Wales is told through its landscape and it is this narrative that I seek to capture in my work.

Kitty has forgotten how long she has been here now but she loves Pembrokeshire for its beauty and it's people. She spends her time searching out stories for pembrokeshire.online, swimming in the sea , drawing and painting as Snorkelfish and eating cake. She says "Pembrokeshire.online has been an opportunity to celebrate this beautiful county and its people. Keep the stories coming. We love to hear from you."
