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 the National Library of Wales, Ffotogallery and the Groundwork Trust.

He gained a BA (Hons) Documentary Photography at the University of Wales College Newport and a MA in Fine Art at the University of Wales Aberystwyth. He completed his PhD at the European Centre for Photographic Research where he examined the factors shaping the development of the photographic arts in Wales during the second-half of the twentieth century.
