From the series Hiraeth:" 'hiraeth' is a word which cannot be translated, meaning more than solely "missing something" or "missing home." To some, it implies the meaning of missing a time, an era, or a person." These landscapes reflect the industrial past of the village of Croesor, North Wales, whilst questioning its future in regard to the tourist industry – last year ministers proposed that the area be granted world heritage status. I am concerned with what the future holds for this area as I have grown up in the doldrums of the slate industries decline. I have witnessed the effect this has had upon the communities that formed from the industrial age. I am apprehensive of this new period of change, but also optimistic. The relics of this area point to the sublime. They serve as reminders of a lost history and act as a warning to the generations to come. This project aims to highlight the beauty of the landscape whilst subjecting the viewer to its historical and cultural importance.

  • We're super excited to showcase the work of 2019 graduate photographer Mathew Scott @mat_scott_ ‘A New Dawn’ is an explorative revisit back into the area where  I grew up.  As I am turning 21 and finishing my degree in university, I was experiencing many moments where I found myself longing for my childhood. Often, the reminiscence of the landscape, the woods and the people from back home, were continuously on my mind. During my time away from there, my family, friends and  I wasn’t noticing the changes that we had been through. However, with my first visit back home, it quickly came to me how much everything had changed. We had both matured and altered at the same time. ‘A New Dawn’, is a walk through the mind of my nostalgia, the unexplainable feeling of returning and recollection of a past time.

The last few months of being at University I got incredibly interested in the psychological effects of the reminiscence of one’s childhood. This was mainly due to the sudden realisation of my becoming age and the change I was about to experience. I consider this age to be a significant turning point – turning from boy to a man, from an adolescent to an adult. As I find myself in the middle of this change, my childhood memories are becoming less and less lucid and with no tendencies of becoming any clearer.

I yearn to remember the visions of my memories. ‘A New Dawn’  is the result of the unexplainable pursuit to understand the nostalgia I am experiencing.
