Newport Survey, 1983, The River Usk; documentary photography publication; 1983

The Newport Survey was an annual publication of black and white documentary photography taken by students at the then famous Department of Documentary Photography, Gewnt College of Higher Education, Newport. It ran through the 1980s. The book was designed by students of the School of Graphic Design. Each year focused on a theme. The 1983 theme was ‘The River Usk’ and includes many pictures of the docks, the shore, and river ‘mud larks’. This and the 1982 ‘Neighbourhood‘ edition are rather wonderful books.
