Jean Napier

Jean Napier was born in East London, but has lived in the Snowdonia National Park since 1991 and the magnificent scenery of the Park is the main inspiration for her photography. Man’s influences on the landscape of North Wales through the ages are a recurring theme in her exhibitions and photography books. Her first book Rhosydd A Personal View – Golwg Bersonol (bilingual Welsh/English) depicts the remains of an old slate quarry in northern Wales with historical text. This was followed by three books that explore nine North Wales rivers from their source to the sea with photographs by Jean and text by Alun Richards.

Rhinogydd: Ancient Routes and Old Roads

One of our members, Jean Napier, has a new book being published on 15 November.

The Rhinogydd mountains are littered with the remains of human habitation that date back centuries. This little book gives you a taste of the drovers’ routes, old coaching roads, derelict gold mines and ancient tombs that still exist in this magnificent landscape.

Jean has explored this wild upland of Meirionnydd extensively over many years. Her passion for this unique land is evident in every photograph taken and word written.
