David Morgan Rees is a freelance writer and photographer concentrating on rural subjects. His photographs of Yorkshire craftsmen and women were taken during the 70s to create a visual record of people's skills before these skills are forgotten. They are printed in black and white to emphasise the shape and texture of the products.
This collection includes 50 framed photographs as well as negatives, contact prints, information boards and leaflets about the archive. A selection of David's photographs has been exhibited under the title: 'Privileged people' in a number of venues across Yorkshire.
Some of David Morgan Rees's work is on display on Level 4 of the Adsetts Learning Centre in the Quiet Study Area.
