Hiraeth is a Welsh word meaning nostalgia, or homesickness. Difficult to translate, it embodies a sense of longing for a lost time or era; a feeling of absence for a place or a person.

We are students of MA Documentary Photography, at the University of South Wales. Hiraeth is our graduate exhibition in October, where we’ll be showcasing our work; stories from home, and far away places.

Rich in diversity, we share a commitment to tell our stories with empathy and understanding. Our projects include: intimate autobiographical revelations, observations of the complexities of family life, connections with ancestral heritage, and stories of place. In all of these we aspire to interrogate and challenge established narratives.

For all of us, photography is the best medium to communicate the complex issues that make our stories interesting and relevant in our time.

From traditional prints and photo-books to digital platforms and conceptual installations, we strive to reach new audiences through the power of photography.

We’re excited to bring Hiraeth to London, and we need your support.

We’re raising money to hold our exhibition at The Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane during a festival of arts and photography. We aim to deliver a high-quality exhibition and we need financial support for marketing, transport, venue hire, exhibition installation and the preview event.

Our kickstarter pledges range from £10 for photography prints to £200 for a personal portrait session. Something for every budget and excellent value.

Choose from the selection of photographs below and receive a signed print on archival-quality paper. Sizes available, A5 (15 x 21 cm), A4 (21 x 30 cm) and A3 (30 x 42 cm). There are also options that include the complete set of twelve photographs.

Look out for limited offers to make the most of discounted rates.

You can also support our campaign by sharing with friends, family and colleagues. Every tweet, like, and positive word will make a difference.

We hope you enjoy looking at a selection of our photography. Please consider donating to our cause, and we look forward to welcoming you to Hiraeth in October.

Risks and challenges

We are confident that we will be able to fulfil our project aim to hold our graduation exhibition in London.
Our exhibition in October is a statutory requirement for our MA graduation.
We are using budgets and planning documents of previous USW graduate exhibitions to forecast for expenses and logistics for our exhibition.
Old Truman Brewery is an established venue with extensive experience overcoming challenges installing and hosting exhibitions.
We are also able to call on the expertise and resources of USW if necessary.

Rewards will be distributed on 25 October 2018.
