Produced by Huw Alden Davies and designed by award winning artist/curator Abby Poulson, Carnifal begins through the words of Dr. Paul Cabuts, renowned for his contribution to the Valleys Project, who sets the tone as we embark on a journey through a visual history of the Tumble carnival. Featuring the work of ten photographers, including Huw Alden Davies, Peter Finnemore, Mohamed Hassan, Dan Staveley, Abby Poulson, Jason Thomas, Jaz Guise, Sal Nordan, Dorian Caba and Gwyn Edwards; containing images from a number of personal archives, Carnifal is a document which celebrates community and collaboration in a time of division and political polarisation. Challenging our notions of identity, culture, and social condition, this is a reminder of what we can achieve together. It is also a reminder of what photography can be, and how it can be used as a creative medium, and more importantly, a voice.
