Lens 6: Wales and the World - The Festival of Welsh Documentary Photography

LENS is held from 19-20 November 2010 at The National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, which holds the largest photographic collection in Wales (over 800,000 photographs). The collection includes the earliest surviving Welsh photograph, a daguerreotype of Margam Castle taken by Calvert Jones in 1841.

This is the only festival of its kind held in Wales, aimed specifically at those interested in documentary photography, in the history of photography and/or Welsh social history.
