I have produced three books to date on the rivers of North Wales with writer Alun John Richards. Each of the books took over 3 years of work to gather the images exploring different aspects of the rivers and their environs. The books follow the rivers from source to mouth and contain stories about legends, industrial heritage, flora and fauna – the books are £12 each.
My first book entitled “Rhosydd – A Personal View/Golwg Bersonol” is in black-and-white. It is about Rhosydd Slate Quarry which is situated high above Blaenau Ffestiniog and illustrates a haunting poem written by Richard Owen at the closure of the slate quarry in 1920. The text gives an insight into the hard life of the quarrymen at the end of the 19th century.
The book is bilingual Welsh/English with the English written by myself and the Welsh by Myrfyn-ap-Dafydd of Carreg Gwalch – the price is £9.50.

Another Book is in Progress!!
I have begun work on a book about the Rhinogydd – a remote, mountainous area of North Wales – on the land marks left behind by mankind over the centuries. Man has inhabited this area for over 9000 years and due to the wildness of the area many remains are still there. I have been exploring here for over 4 years and used the project for my MA in Fine Art at Aberystwyth University. So maybe in three years time the book will be ready!
