The following 20 images are a selection from Glyn's fourth photography book, Welsh Light, published in August 2012. The new book will contain 120 full plate images in this 264-page publication. There is also a 6,000 word introduction describing the artist's response to his subject and his rationale for photography.
The foreword has been written by the Guardian picture editor, Roger Tooth.
Here is the cover description for the book:
"Welcome to my fourth and largest volume of photographs so far, all created during my wanderings across the intriguingly beautiful and varied rural regions of Anglesey, Snowdonia and the Llyn. As with previous volumes, I should start by saying that this is not a book ‘about’ Wales, but instead a personal collection of atmospheric images stimulated by the light, weather and culturally influenced landscape of this captivating, spectacular area.
You will undoubtedly recognise many of the places pictured in this book, but when you study the body of work ‘as a whole’, you will hopefully notice something else, something unfamiliar - sometimes disturbing, sometimes melancholy, occasionally uplifting – something that has far more to do with a spiritual connection to this ancient earth, infinite skies and that fragile thing called ‘life’. Welsh Light is more than just an interpretation of a magical landscape, it’s a momentary insight into my search for the ‘bigger picture'"
