‘Bri­tain’s first land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher’

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - News -

That’s what a lot of peo­ple call Fay God­win (19312005), who pi­o­neered the art of land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy in her quest to ex­plore how the mod­ern world was en­croach­ing on na­ture. Her mas­ter­piece is the 1977 book The Drovers’ Roads of Wales, and im­ages from the book form the core of a ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion in Machyn­l­leth, Powys, from Fe­bru­ary 17th to April 1st. The venues are the Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art and the Pen­rallt Gallery Book­shop. As part of the expo, Mike Parker (au­thor of the won­der­ful Map Ad­dict) will lead walks along the drovers’ roads out of Machyn­l­leth on March 1st and March 5th.
