Dylan Arnold bought his first SLR camera as a teen in 1988, sparking a lifelong love of photography, but the real turning point came with the digital world, when he started to take it seriously.

The wild and stunning landscapes of North Wales has always been Dylan’s playground, source of inspiration and camera’s focus.

His ongoing personal project is photographing derelict buildings and remote places in his homeland, depicting an old way of Welsh life that’s rapidly disappearing or has already disappeared. He has been invited to have a future exhibition at Storiel Gallery.

North Wales has always been Dylan’s home. He was born in Bangor and raised in Nantgwynant and Beddgelert – two small, beautiful villages that lie next to each other in the Snowdonia National Park. Currently he lives in Llanrug with his wife and two young sons.
