New Project (Who's Next?)

 
New project title.jpg
 

Who’s Next? (working title) is an ongoing exploration, documenting interesting figures of the Cardiff community. I started by documenting Zak, a stick ‘n’ poke tattoo artist who I got to know through Instagram. From there I’ve documented people who’d either been recommended to me, had contacted me or I had met personally. I want this project to be organic in it’s approach. I like the idea of not planning where it will take me or knowing all of the characters I might meet along the way. Cardiff is often an overlooked UK city but I believe there are a lot of people here who are benefiting the community and Cardiff’s culture in a positive way. I plan to meet as many people as possible, and show their stories through my camera, and show why I think Cardiff is a thriving city that has a lot to offer.
