Brereton Jane, Wrexham 2013 - POET'S GRAVES - BEDDAU'R BEIRDD
Notes on Jane Breteton

A very wet day in Wrexham and I knew Brereton's grave was inside the church. Unfortunately the porter's were closing the church and had just turned off all he lights as I entered, wet, equipment loaded.
They told me to return the following day and I had intended. However, there was some shelter beneath these trees and although the rain was falling hard, I decided I'd make a long exposure looking towards the church entrance. Only one exposure was made, eight minutes in total, and this was the result.

From Winter 2012 through to Spriing 2014 I visited graveyards throughout the length and breadth of Wales. Many hours were spent searching for particular gravestones, of poet's, well known and not so well known. A few were not found, mostly they were.
The project was difficult not due the hours searching but more so to finding an ordinary gravestone in a wild graveyard. So often other viewpoints of other gravestones would have made an excellent photographic record but I was forced to settle, even compromise, with my brief. Frustrating as it was, it was also made the more rewarding, my eye was forced to work harder. Fortunately these peaceful places helped with keeping the mind free of distractions.
Here are a few of the images published in the book.
