Mike Perry, 75 years on, will be sharing his own stories of his beach combing along the Pembrokeshire coast. He will be discussing photographic works from his Môr Plastig (Plastic Sea) series and the challenges of making work that has an environmental narrative.

Mike Perry has exhibited his Môr Plastig work at The Royal Academy, The 56th Venice Biennale, National Museum Wales and currently has a touring exhibition of Wales and England titled Land/Sea sponsored by Ffotogallery and Arts Council Wales.

Bydd yn trafod gweithiau ffotograffig o'i gyfres Môr Plastig a'r her o wneud gwaith sydd â naratif amgylcheddol.
