They were the visible representations of power and privilege at the core of ancestral lands. Now they are quietly decaying, the social order that sustained them fragmented into something more equitable yet also more alienating. But they still have the power to compel our gaze and to stir the imagination with thoughts of belonging. They are the lost mansions of Wales. Paul White's portfolio of stunning black-and-white photographs of these houses represents a significant cultural and historical document, and it is with these images that Damian Walford Davies's English text and Siân Melangell Dafydd's Welsh text continue a keen and intriguing dialogue.
