Welsh Mod: Our Story

Our Story is a project that will culminate in a high-quality, hard-back photographic book of 150 pages plus, documenting the roots and revival of the mod sub-culture in Wales from the 60s through to the present day.

Working with BAFTA-award winning Welsh photographer, Haydn Denman,http://www.haydndenman-photography.com, we will be photographing in many iconic locations across Wales.

We will be speaking to Welsh musicians, fashion designers, film directors, DJs, record collectors and scooter enthusiasts about what mod means to them and how it has changed their life.

The book will include interviews with those who were part of 'the scene' in the 60s such Welsh-born fashion designer Jeff Banks, as well as those who were introduced to mod in the punk/new-wave era such as The Alarm's Mike Peters and Richard Parfitt of 60ft Dolls and award-winning writer and film director Jonathan Owen.

But this isn't just about famous people. The life-blood of this book will be the club night promoters, record collectors, vintage clothes traders and scooter enthusiasts across Wales who are keeping the mod scene alive.

There has never been a book of this type that pays tribute to the mod scene in Wales. This will be a first.
