On the evening of Thursday 28th July, we will be holding a panel discussion exploring the themes of the domestic space in photography and art. Joining us will be artists Dafydd Williams, Rosy Martin and John Paul Evans on the panel. Each of these artists explores similar themes in their own work through various approaches.

We would love you to join us for an evening of stimulating conversation between 6 and 8pm in our beautiful gallery space in Cathays.

What is lost… what has been is a solo exhibition of photographic works by Welsh artist John Paul Evans, taking place at Ffotogallery from 17 June – 3 September 2022.

Exhibited together for the first time, this collection of John Paul Evans’ series of works pose questions about photography’s relationship with memory, love, loss and representation.

Working with his partner Peter, the artist uses performative portraiture, still life and collage to reimagine domestic and public spaces. From carefully constructed, detailed images to mindful documentations of cloudscapes, the work is both collectively playful and poignantly tender. John Paul Evans’s practice serves as a reminder of the visible traditions and often invisible social structures which exclude groups subjected to oppression, including but not exclusive to the LGBTQIA+ community.
