Rick Davies’ panoramic prints go beyond what the eye normally sees and provide insights to our contemporary industrial and post-industrial experience. The artist’s elongated vistas of places such as Milford Haven and Port Talbot show how concrete and steel structures and petrochemical plants have become embedded in the landscape, with incongruous industrial and leisure activities taking place side by side.

Invisible Landscapes is the second exhibition in Ffotogallery’s Wish You Were Here summer season, focusing on emerging photographic artists in Wales.

In a provocative and sometimes hilarious fashion, Visual Pleasure examines the act of looking and being looked at. Referring to psychoanalysis, phenomenology and feminism, Dawn Woolley considers both her own experience and that of the viewer when looking at her as a female and a photographic object. In a practice that encompasses photography, video, sculpture, installation and performance, Woolley questions how we interpret what we see and how meaning is created by social regulation, expectation and desire.

Visual Pleasure is the first exhibition in Ffotogallery’s Wish You Were Here summer season, focusing on emerging photographic artists in Wales.
