Synopsis: Richard Gaunt moved to South Wales in 1969. Already possessing a keen interest in photography that he had developed living in County Durham, he now turned his attention to his new home. He photographed everything he saw; the steelworks where he worked, the locomotives that gave him many hours of off-duty pleasure and the people and buildings around him. The seventies were very much a time of change in Wales. Old terraced streets were giving way to new housing developments and old industries like coal and steel were becoming obsolete. These changes are reflected in the remarkable black and white photography that makes up this powerful collection of images, framed by the author's reminiscences of the time. Richard has a superb eye for the usual and the memorable and it is his pictures of people and the stark beauty of the run down and the decayed that make the images in this book both so poignant and so unforgettable. This book will delight those that revel in a well-framed photograph as well as those that wish to explore a time of genuine change, not so long ago

About the Author: Richard Gaunt was born in Lancashire but grew up in Darlington. He went to live in Wales in 1969, and took all the photographs for this book during that decade. His work career has included posts in the chemicals, steel and construction industries, as well as in local government and most recently as a director of a policy research consultancy. His photographs have appeared in The Guardian and Steam Railway among other publications.

Book Description Fonthill, 2014. Book Condition: New. During the 1970s the coal and steel industries that provided much of the employment in Wales were shrinking, and - despite social progress and increasing prosperity - regeneration and improvement of the built environment was slow to come. This thoughtful and thought-provoking collection of black-and-white photographs includes images from all over Wales, and is notable for a sense of decline and neglect in studies of iconic national subjects such as coal mines, steam railways, seaside resorts, and Nonconformist churches and chapels.

Book Description Fonthill Media, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. During the 1970s, people in Wales had to face up to big changes to jobs, housing, transportation and many other aspects to daily life. Mines and mills were closing-but at the same time people were, on average, getting richer, and new technologies were starting to make an impact on traditional drudgery in homes, factories and offices. Richard Gaunt s previously unpublished photographs take us back to that era, with stark beautiful images of places and people taken during this turbulent decade. They cover not just the redundant steelworks and closed mines, but also older people having fun on holiday and youngsters making their own amusements on demolition sites. This unique book will trigger all kinds of nostalgia for those who remember Wales in the 1970s, but its appeal goes much wider and will include those with an interest in wider British social and economic history, and anyone who enjoys dramatic black and white images of everyday life in Britain nearly half a century ago, Bookseller Inventory # AA79781781552438
