60: Photographs by Marian Delyth

12 April - 14th June 2014

From her earliest pictures taken in 1964 as a little girl to her recent work, this exhibition celebrates a life dedicated to photography.

Marian Delyth has worked as a free-lance photographer and graphic designer in her studio in Blaenplwyf since 1982. She was born in Aberystwyth and received her early education at Ysgol Gymraeg and Ardwyn Grammar School, Aberystwyth. She worked in an advertising agency before returning to this area to teach photography at Coleg Ceredigion. After working as a member of the design department of the Welsh Books Council, she decided in 1982 to embark on her freelance career. Her work can be seen in numerous publications and she has won many awards. In recent times she became a familiar face on television, presenting her photography for the award winning book ‘Cymru y 100 lle i’w gweld cyn marw’ (also published as ‘Wales - the 100 places to see before you die’).

"Arriving at this 60th milestone I'm taking a quick look back over my shoulder at some of the images of the past before proceeding on my way to the future.This is not a comprehensive retrospective exhibition but my personal selection of 60 images that reflect a varied approach and exploration of lens media. The technology of the medium has been revolutionised during this era, but the most important element remains unchanged – the curiosity and focus of the mind and the eye behind the lens." Marian Delyth
