Dan Wood,photographer

Dan Wood is a Bridgend based photographer he is supporting the Art About Us by documenting the project.

He is a brilliant artist in his own right, a great example of some of the artists talent in Bridgend.



I was born in Bridgend, South Wales 1974, where I still live to this day, working from my home based studio/darkroom. I have always been dedicated to black and white photography using film and traditional methods.


I have not been swayed by the digital revolution, If anything, it has confirmed my loyalty to film. For me, It is in the darkroom where the work of the artist meets the work of the artisan. Personally I feel it is this that sets the traditional photographer apart from the modern day digital photographer.


I am an Arts council of Wales supported Street/Documentary photographer, with over 15 years of experience. Taking inspiration from a wide subject matter, I have travelled widely in the pursuit of photos, capturing a multitude of cultures. I’m always seeking to produce images that are expressive and thought provoking.


My work has been featured in a number of publications, and exhibited both nationally and internationally.
