After a nervous wait, the films came back from processing this week and here is the collection of ’30 Portraits in a Day’ from Cardiff. Thank you to everyone who gave me a moment of their time, it was a great experience for me. If you are the subject of one of my portraits, and want a copy, just pop me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get one printed for you. Thanks again x
Delegates from the WI, stakeholders and politicians gathered at the Pierhead in Cardiff Bay for a reception to celebrate 100 years of the Women’s Institute. The movement began in Canada then spread across the Atlantic. The first meeting was held at Llanfair PG on Anglesey on September 16th 1915. The original aim was to encourage countrywomen to get involved in food production and preservation to help the supply during WWI.
The speakers including Dame Rosemary Butler AM, Ann Jones (NFWI Wales Chair), Lesley Griffiths AM and Janice Langley (NFWI Chair). They spoke about the modern WI and the impact of the organisation. It was enlightening to hear about the work of the WI and Dame Rosemary’s talk on the impact of mentorship opportunities in Wales.
On Tuesday this week I had such an amazing day in Cardiff shooting a ’30 portraits in a day’ self induced project. I met so many amazing people from all over the world. Stopping people in the street is quite scary but the rewards of having treasured conversations with people you would never meet otherwise makes the process so very special. The films are currently being developed and they should be up early next week! Thank you to all who gave me a moment of their time, much appreciated!
