David Morgan-Davies uses photography to explore ideas about a landscape or environment he has a personal connection with. Often investigating what isn’t there, just as much as what is, he follows a ‘less is more’ approach that hints at human activity. Within his work he mixes black and white with colour, analogue with digital and experiments with collage and printing techniques.
Since moving back to South Wales in the summer of 2019, David has spent time re-connecting with the area he left as a child. This process has driven the development of his recent work, which as well as referencing his own roots, documents the evolving landscapes of South Wales, reflecting on their sense of place and the role of photography in historical documentation.
