Lluniau John Cornwell

Ffotograffydd ar ei liwt ei hun oedd John Cornwell. Yn y saithdegau a'r wythdegau cynnar, tynnodd nifer o ffotograffau o byllau glo, yn Ne Cymru a Chanolbarth Lloegr yn bennaf, a hynny ar yr wyneb a danddaear.

Perffeithiodd dechneg o dynnu ffotograffau danddaear oedd yn defnyddio goleuadau cyffredin pwll glo, gan alluogi iddo dynnu lluniau hynod eglur o dalcenni glo, twnneli, siafftiau ac offer. Yn ogystal â thynnu ffotograffau mewn pyllau gweithredol, byddai hefyd yn cofnodi gweithfeydd segur, ar yr wyneb a danddaear.

Roedd John Cornwell hefyd yn uchel ei barch ym maes archaeoleg ddiwydiannol. Cyhoeddodd nifer o lyfrau ar byllau glo Cymru a Lloegr.

Mae hawlfraint ei ddelweddau o dde Cymru bellach ym meddiant Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Cymru.
