Exhibition, Thu 17 Jan - Sun 24 Feb 2019, free entry




Rob was a Large Animal Veterinarian working in the Brecon area from 2004 to 2010. His interactions with the farming community gave him the opportunity to photograph local farming families.

Robs portrait collection slowly grew and in 2006 he co-produced a calendar titled ‘Welsh Dudes’ which highlighted some of the local farmers. 2010 saw Robs departure from Veterinary practice due to ill health, and while he is no longer involved in the farmer community he still remembers the characters he was privileged to meet during his time in practice, these portraits have been stored away, some dating back 14 years.

He feels privileged to have been asked to have his photographs displayed, and once again share some of the moments he captured during his time in practice. His photography includes individuals or several generations of the one family, some who are no longer with us.
