Dylan Marlais Thomas was a Welsh poet and writer whose works include the poems "Do not go gentle into that good night" and "And death shall have no dominion"; the 'play for voices' Under Milk Wood; and stories and radio broadcasts. Thomas met Caitlin Macnamara, whom he married in 1937. In the early part of their marriage, Thomas and his family lived in the Welsh fishing village of Laugharne. He became widely popular in his lifetime and remained so after his premature death at the age of 39.
Dublin-born John Minihan moved to London at the age of twelve and became an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At twenty-one he was the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. His photographs have been exhibited throughout the world. Minihan works as a freelance photographer specialising in the arts.
