Industrial landscapes by Rick Davies


BFTF is fascinated, and often very moved, by the industrial landscape around us.

Derelict buildings in particular make BFTF wonder what they were like when they were alive with the sound of people and equipment, and they make BFTF sad that they are no longer required. What happeded to those jobs? Did they move elsewhere in UK? or overseas? or did the whole sector die? and what was the effect on the local communities?

It is perhaps not surprising, therefore, that BFTF is entranced by the photography of Rick Davies who captures the industrial landscape of South Wales in detailed and arresting panoramas. You can see a feature on his work here.
