Landscape and Nudes by Glyn Davies
...
Having just had the pleasure of casting my eyes over renowned landscape photographer, Glyn Davies' eagerly anticipated latest collective works - Welsh Light - it is fair to say from the outset that the collection cannot fail to further cement his reputation as one of our most gifted and imaginative photographers.
Despite being very much a Welsh artist, Glyn in fact was brought up in Cornwall, before crossing the Severn Estuary in his early 20's and settling in the land of his antecedents.
...
This is the difference for me, between those photographers like Glyn Davies who are artists, and those professional photographers who despite being technically proficient and capable of taking 'nice' photographs, fall down when it comes to creating atmosphere in a photograph. For amateurs like myself who have some half decent cameras in their possession- who possess a modicum of photo editing know how and who take thousands of landscape photographs a year, it is sobering to realise that we are only taking snaps compared to artists like Glyn !
Glyn Davies belongs to a honourable tradition of creatives.
...
Here Glyn has perfectly seized those timeless qualities and captured the evocative sensory nature of these quiet places.
...
However, despite the barbarians at the gate, we should at least be thankful to have creative figures like Glyn Davies around, to chronicle and record the magical essence of our mountain vistas and those otherworldly big sky seascapes.
...
Glyn is a captivating speaker and I gained a brilliant understanding of his motivations which are much more complex than merely to take a pretty picture. His emotional connection with the sea, for me, summed up the importance of Anglesey Marine Week; our unspoilt world is food for the soul
...
"Huge thanks Glyn for my beautiful & amazing book.
...
"Glyn Davies has been living and working photography since an early age with a family connection with the arts that runs very deep.
...
Glyn is also as happy working in black and white as he is in colour - at one moment working in very high contrast monochrome and another a saturated sunset.
...
Years on, whilst I may take less photos,(sorry Glyn) I'm still thankful for that gift he gave me, every single time I see a ray of light hit a hillside or look at the tiny details in a stone wall or watch the reflection of clouds in water.
...
"I have always loved looking at pictures and eventually at the age of fifteen I got myself a camera and spent the next 20 years learning the art of photography from books, magazines etc. then for no reason, myself and my wife decided to go live in North Wales, One evening my wife said that in the local paper a photographer was offering evening classes, so I thought it sounded ok and went, Glyn showed some of his work and I was impressed, so I joined the group, I soon realised that although I was competent technically I didnt know how to really see, after some weeks of listening intently to what Glyn was teaching I slowly started to realise what it was all about and my work started to improve. Glyn then asked if I would be interested in being his assistant, so of course it was too good an opportunity to miss and had the next year working with Glyn, I suppose what I really want to say is Glyn was totally free with his knowledge and taught me everything, he took me under his wing and gave me something, I cant put into words what it was but I will always be thankful. Glyn is the master photographer but more than that"
...
I had the great pleasure of meeting Glyn last year in his gallery.
...
From an Amazon.co.uk review: Glyn Davies has a special way of painting with his skilled eye & camera - the pictures astound, can take your breath away, stop you in your tracks & make you want to visit the places he has seen through his lens, & of course hang on your wall. I have visited some of these locations, with some holding extremely special memories in my heart, & I have taken pictures there too - but nothing compares to a Glyn Davies image when he has been there & captured the light 'just right' & the moment in time that was his!
...
Wonderful photography, Glyn, will do my best to get to the exhibition.

Anglesey Landscapes/ Tirluniau Môn Whether you've had the pleasure of visiting this stunning part of the world or not, Glyn Davies's photographs serve as a wonderful introduction to the best photographic locations in the area. Each photograph is of exquisite quality, demonstrative of the range of possibilities open to the landscape photographer, whatever the weather. Davies annotates each image in English and Welsh, revealing his emotional response to the dramatic landscape and the elements within it. Whether you're a photographer or art lover, you'll be delighted by this. Digital Photographer Magazine, Issue 64 (Dec 2007)
Anglesey Landscapes books 1 and 2: "I've had a look through the books and what can I say? The only time I've seen any number of your digital works was when we visited you at your original shop/gallery in Menai Bridge but what's great to see from the images in the books is that although the medium is now digital the images are still instantly recognisable as Glyn Davies.

COMMISSIONS and PURCHASES "Glyn is a highly talented photographer with a stunning portfolio of work.
...
From "Linked-In" testimonials: "It was hard to choose only three attributes for Glyn's work. Glyn took the commission to provide a wide range of mainly North Wales images for the new £14m Management Centre, part of Bangor University Business School. We have received high plaudits from all centre visitors regarding the work, which we hope will provide a showcase for these images. As well as providing images displaying superb artistry and talent, Glyn has been a pleasure to work with; he has a deep knowledge of his craft but also adopts a clear business-like approach to the client-supplier relationship.
...
Glyn took Frocked's first ever photo-shoot & was a true pro, guiding & advising us on our steep learning curve.
...
My favourite Anglesey photos come courtesy of Glyn Davies [ http://www.glyndavies.com/ ]. His landscapes are so good they make me want to burn my own eyes out. A bit extreme. And a lie. They're very good. Very very good.

'Landscape Figures' - by photographic artist, Glyn Davies BA(Hons)
A major new photographic exhibition by established landscape photographer Glyn Davies, comprising fifty one, immaculately crafted A1 edition prints, is now showing at the spacious Oriel Ynys Môn Gallery on Anglesey. This is Glyn Davies' second exhibition at the venue & is quite a departure from his first, as for the first time we see Glyn introducing the naked form into his magnificent landscapes.
For Glyn the landscape has always been more important than photography itself but for over three years now he has spent much of his time on a project exploring fragility of the human form in wild landscape, but also the sensuous relationship of the human to that environment.
In his late twenties Glyn discovered for himself the freedom & liberation of being nude in the great outdoors, whilst sunbathing on naturist beaches and this greatly influenced his attitudes to nudity and his approach to this project.
"I found myself fascinated by the link between the stripped-bare naked form and the naturalness of the wind-formed sand - everything seemed 'right', understandable and connected. I started to place myself in many other landscapes whilst out and about shooting images for my gallery, and I realised that the simple exploration of nude figures within landscape was becoming a self-portrait project, but there was a growing intrigue to see if others would relate to my ideas".
Glyn started to work with amateur volunteer models who were friends and members of the general public. The more images he produced, the easier it was to find new volunteers, inspired as they were by what they could see as a growing and intriguing project, and a project in which they would leave their own comfort zones.
In most cases Glyn has hidden the models faces, as he did not want the images to become 'portraits' of actual people, but simply studies of figures in situ responding to location and the weather.

It was over 25 years since Glyn had held a show in London so this was a fantastic opportunity to bring his Welsh images to a London audience. An exhibition was well overdue, as it was almost a year from his last exhibition of new work, instead of the anticipated 3-4 times a year.
