“case studies” is an exhibition of photographs by Dafydd Williams, an experimental photographer and camera maker born in 1984 in Abertillery, Wales.


Dafydd Williams is a self-taught analogue photographer and for the last 5 years he has been modifying and making cameras, having built a camera in each country he’s lived in – Poland, Italy and Wales. He’s also a co-founder of the*kickplate*project.

As opposed to the current trends in professional photography, Dafydd does not work in series of photographs and usually captures a given subject in only one image. His photographs focus on the uniqueness and singularity of each visual experience, giving equal attention to people, landscapes or objects. The exhibition is both a review of different techniques and Dafydd’s travels during the last few years, presenting photos taken in Wales, Poland, Italy and Sri Lanka.

The exhibition will present images taken in a variety of formats, from 35mm through medium to large format, and with a variety cameras, including a modified double-sided Holga, Polaroid double exposures and photos taken with Dafydd’s three homemade cameras: Polyphemus (3” by 4”), Andy (using different size film, ranging from 6cm x 9cm to 4” x 5”) and an 8” by 10” field camera Grandiflorum.  

You can find Dafydd’s images on his page and flickr or follow him on Twitter.
