BIOGRAPHY

Paul Cabuts uses photography to examine the visual history of the Valleys of south Wales in the UK. He was initially motivated by the differences between his personal experiences of living and working in the Valleys, and the way in which the region had been represented in photography and other media.

His photography has been exhibited at venues in the UK and beyond including the Australian Centre for Photography, Germany’s Treffpunkt Stuttgart and Kaunas Photography Gallery, Lithuania. The Welsh dimension to Cabuts’ work has contributed to its visibility within Wales in exhibitions at a number of venues including Ffotogallery, the National Eisteddfod and the National Assembly for Wales. The work has also been published in catalogues, journals and other publications including Source, New Welsh Review, Taliesin and Planet and has featured on television both inside and outside Wales.

A recipient of a Creative Wales Award from the Arts Council of Wales, Cabuts has been commissioned to work on numerous photography projects including the BBC’s BAFTA Cymru Award winning Capture Wales project. His photographs are held in a number of public collections including those at Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, National Library of Wales, Ffotogallery and the Groundwork Trust.

He completed his PhD at the European Centre for Photographic Research following an MA in Fine Art at Aberystwyth University and a BA (Hons) Documentary Photography at the Newport School of Art & Design. The University of Wales Press published his monograph Creative Photography and Wales in 2012. He is an Honorary Research Fellow at Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales.
