Robin Weaver Prints | South Wales, 1970s

After leaving Newport College of Art in the 1970s Robin Weaver worked as a photographer for the South Wales Argus.

Aside from his day job photographing everything from mayoral visits to rugby matches, Robin followed his passion of documentary photography.

Robin’s stunning photos of South Wales in the 1970s capture a different era in Welsh culture – faces and places that are no longer with us, images frozen in time before the onset of the hyper-connected world we live in today.

Robin “These photographs have developed a special character, It’s a unique sheen imbued by the passage of time. Looking through these photographs today, decades later, I find myself not only in a different time, but also in a different country.”
