Discover Cymru Collaborative Exhibition with Found
The twelve images shown here have been selected for the Discover Cymru 2020 calendar. Discover Cymru is an Instagram community all about Wales’ wild places that has been around for five years, amassing a following of over 59,000 fans who have collectively posted 230,000 images to the hashtag.
Each year Discover Cymru brings the beautiful images to life with a printed calendar, selecting twelve of the most iconic images from the past year. This is their first exhibition, with sales of the calendars and prints supporting two Welsh charities who keep the outdoor community safe when out on the hills; Wales Air Ambulance and Mountain Rescue Wales.
The people who have taken the images are a mix of established and emerging photographers, Found Gallery is delighted to be able to give them all the opportunity to share the work further.
Annie Lawrie, Wales Air Ambulance Community Coordinator, said: “The Discover Cymru calendar is no ordinary calendar. It is a beautiful photographic document of Wales’ stunning landscapes by a community of talented photographers. We are incredibly grateful to Discover Cymru for recognising our lifesaving contribution to Wales and for their generosity in dedicating some of the calendar’s proceeds to the Wales Air Ambulance Charity. We also work closely with our friends at Mountain Rescue and both charities will benefit enormously, as will the people of Wales.”
