About Ffasiwn from LensCulture

A heavy grey sky hangs over a former mining town in South Wales. This brooding scene lends itself as the unlikely backdrop to an Alice in Wonderland esque banquet, both its guests and the street decked out in a riot of purple tones. This fantastical context is the product of a hive-mind: the imaginations of photographer Clémentine Schneidermann, stylist Charlotte James and a handful of children from two local youth groups, who are modelling their own creations. Following the decline of the coal mining industry in the 1980s, the region suffered greatly, and is currently one of the most deprived in the UK. It is mainly pictured as so, trapped within a frame of negativity and working class stereotypes that do little to paint a full picture of the experience of its residents. Without denying the lasting impacts that de-industrialization has had on the region, this book looks to the Valley’s future generations. Seeking to nourish their creativity and use it as a means of interacting with their surroundings.
