A year in the life of Sheep

October 21, 2019

Roy Carr was our guest speaker for the evening. Having been a keen photography for many years Roy decided to do a photograhic project lasting a year.

 

Roy's subject was 'The sheep farming community in the Cynon Valley'. He admitted that when he started the project he had no experience of sheep farming, so it was a learning journey for him in many ways, not only learning about the sheep, but also about the people who farmed the land.

 

In a short space of time the farmers' markets, which were social places where farmers could meet up and discuss the livestock which was being auctioned, have mostly disappeared due to modern technology. Roy considered this a very sad situation of modern times.
