I have donated two photographs to the auction:
Mute Swan (from my book) and Brecon Beacons over Llangors Lake

Proceeds support the Foundation’s work in arts and education, working with local communities and schools in often disadvantaged areas in Wales and increasing access to artists and the arts as well as work in the field of human rights. Half of all funds raised will also support the acquisition and further development of the former Sardis Chapel in Ystradgynlais, which the Foundation is developing as a future arts and heritage centre and a new home for their collection.
All works are listed in the auction catalogue, and a selection of work will be in the pre-auction exhibition at:
The Welfare, Ystradgynlais
