Ffotogallery is the national development agency for photography in Wales.[1] It was established in 1978 and is based in two locations. Main offices and many facilities are located in Chapter in the city of Cardiff, while its gallery is located in Turner House in Penarth. Its current director is David Drake.

Background[edit]

Ffotogallery is a national organisation and has an exhibition programme featuring artists from Wales and the rest of the world. It features touring exhibitions, collaborations with other organisations and galleries, print and online publishing and an education and outreach programme. Ffotogallery also works with film and video, digital media and installation.

In 2003 they acquired the Turner House Gallery in Penarth from the National Museum of Wales and have subsequently used it for photography-based exhibitions.[2]

Commissions[edit]

Major Ffotogallery commissions made in and about Wales over the last three decades include The Valleys Project, A470 and Barrage. These have featured alongside important new work made in single artist projects such as Keith Arnatt, Josef Koudelka, Peter Finnemore, Willie Doherty, Peter Fraser, Wendy McMurdo, John Davies, Catherine Yass and Bedwyr Williams. Many works commissioned by Ffotogallery are now held in national collections in Wales, or have been acquired for British Council and Arts Council collections.
