Made in Wales: A Fine Beginning

Brian David Stevens | 22nd February 2014


A new show of work from Welsh collective, A Fine Beginning, including one of Brian David Stevens’ images from the Brighter Later series.

A Fine Beginning, from which this collective takes its name, is the first chapter of Dylan Thomas’ unfinished novel Adventures in the Skin Trade. The central character of the story leaves his parents home in South Wales for Paddington Station and when asked where he’s going, Samuel Bennett replies, ‘I don’t know where I’m going, I haven’t any idea in the world, that’s why I came to London’.

A Fine Beginning is an open Welsh photography collective, established by James O Jenkins with the ambition to develop a platform to discover and showcase contemporary photography being made in Wales today.
