Festival Faces 1
In 2009 I set up a makeshift studio at Maindee Festival, offering photographic portraits to anyone who was interested. I didn't stop all day, and ended up with hundreds of images of happy festival goers.
Newport is often its worst enemy - with a tendency for locals (and near neighbours) to complain about the state of the city - focusing on the bad and ignoring the good. I hope these portraits have the opposite effect, showing the rich cultural diversity of the people of Newport in a positive light.
