These are some of the 70 portraits made with my Pop Up Portrait Studio in Cardiff last weekend. They are not final shots, just rushes without any processing. A print from each portrait will be exhibited in the Cardiff Story Museum, that I am installing today. Each person photographed will be able to go into the museum and unpeg their own portrait from the wall, for them to keep.
I had a great weekend in Cardiff. I was impressed by how open, honest and friendly people were. Even when they declined to take part, people were polite and apologetic. Except for one woman, who told me ‘I just can’t be bothered’ – honest and fair enough.
My Pop Up Studio is back there tomorrow and Sunday. I’ll be setting up in Roathe, outside an old church (on the corner of Albany Rd and Wellfield Rd). I’m hoping to get a different mix of people and keeping my fingers crossed that the rain stays away…
