Recorded by Ffotogallery at The Dairy temporary art space on 15th September 2011.
As part of the Wish You Were Here season of exhibitions and events, photographer Gawain Barnard discusses his practice and the works in his exhibition 'Maybe We'll Be Soldiers' with Jesse Alexander.
Maybe We’ll Be Soldiers is a story of realisation, self-doubt, expectations and coming of age. A young person’s sense of invincibility fades as they reach adulthood and the beautiful naivety of youth gives way to caution and future plans. Through intimate portraits, Barnard captures that moment in the lives of young teenagers in Wales, juxtaposed here with images of foliage and verdant nature.
