Publisher's Description

The Curious Moaning of Kenfig Burrows is an artist’s book by Sophy Rickett. The book documents Rickett’s encounter with the life and work of Thereza Dillwyn Llewelyn, a Welsh artist and astronomer active at the end of the C19th. Through photography and text, Rickett charts her (often unsuccessful) journey towards making sense of the Dillwyn Llewelyn family’s fascinating, yet sprawling and complex archive.

Taking as a starting point, the incompleteness of the archive, its inconsistencies and apparent misattributions, Rickett produces a series of text and image based responses to this remote world of Victorian privilege with its close associations to the early history of photography.
