Representation of the South Wales Valleys
This article intends to explore the post-industrial representation of the South Wales Valleys, through investigation of imagery anterior to, and of, the present environment. I have visited and recorded my experiences at a variety of sites, and considered their implications in a social and cultural context. The images and texts that I have chosen to analyse have been primarily building or location orientated, rather than of individual people, as a method of concentrating on how society chooses its style of architecture, environment, landscape, and the treatment of our surroundings; dereliction, re-landscaping, and redevelopment. The article bears some thought to the notion of imagined community, the placing of the heritage industry on small communities, the role of the outside photographer, and the overall effects on the identities of the people and their environment in the South Wales Valleys.
