Roedd Chalkie Davies, sy'n wreiddiol o Sili ym Mro Morgannwg, yn gweithio fel ffotograffydd i gylchgrawn roc yr NME (New Musical Express) rhwng 1975 ac 1979.

Tynnodd luniau rhai o gerddorion mwyaf dylanwadol yr oes - gan gynnwys Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Ian Dury, Debbie Harry, Paul McCartney, The Clash, The Ramones a The Rolling Stones. Mae arddangosfa o'i waith i'w weld yn Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Cymru yng Nghaerdydd tan fis Medi 2015.

Welsh photographer Chalkie Davies (originally from Sully in the Vale of Glamorgan) worked for the rock magazine NME from 1975 to 1979.

A retrospective exhibition of his work includes a largely unseen collection of 64 black and white images of many influentialbands and musicians including The Clash, The Specials, Sex Pistols, Elvis Costello, David Bowie, Thin Lizzy and The Who.

The exhibition is at National Museum Cardiff from 9 May - 6 September 2015.
