Dylan Thomas and the Bohemians : The Photographs of Nora Summers Hardback
Nora Summers was responsible for some of the iconic images of Wales' most famous bard Dylan Thomas, but the inmost details of her life, bucolic and populated by bohemians, eccentrics and mavericks, have remained largely unknown until now. A talented painter and photographer who revelled in documenting the picturesque, communal Arcadia she spent her whole life constructing and inhabiting, her relationships with Thomas and, more predominantly, his wife, Caitlin Macnamara, birthed creativity and strife in equal measure.
Part biography, part photobook, Dylan Thomas and the Bohemians draws from the personal archives, both physical and memorial, of Gabriel Summers, Nora's grandson, and his partner Leonie, with contributions from Jeff Towns, a leading writer on the life and work of Dylan Thomas, and seeks to present an intimate and revealing portrait of both Summers and the creative company she kept.
