St Davids is the UKs smallest city, located on the most Western point of the Pembrokeshire coast with a population of just 1841. This project explores the connection between people and place, seeking to understand the connections that the subjects have with the landscape, and their reasoning and choices for spending their lives in such a secluded part of the world. Through his personal connection with the landscape, Alex is able to offer a thoughtful and insightful documentation of this tightly formed community, in which he spent his childhood.
His project has evolved from his initial connection with his neighbour, Dai, and the life he has spent in St Davids and the stories he had to tell. Broadening his work to the wider community, Alex is in search of what connects other members of the community to the place and explores how St Davids has impacted their lives.
