‘The People of the Rhondda’ Exhibition

Tony Smith of Phoenix (Rhondda) Camera Club has a forthcoming roving exhibition entitled ‘The People of the Rhondda’. The exhibition includes snapshot photos of people from all walks of life living, working or coming from the Rhondda. The idea for the project came about when he once said the words ‘I hate doing portraits’. This resulted in a self-inspired challenge to prove himself wrong.

The roving exhibition starts with Tonypandy Library on the 5th November (with the official opening at 5.30 pm on the 6th by local councillor Gareth Hughes). It then moves to Treorchy Library on the 26th November. It will be on display for at least 2 weeks at each of these venues.

It then moves to Porth Library from the 7th January and Ferndale Library on the 28th January.

Fifty portraits will be on display at Tonypandy and Treorchy but the available space dictates that number be reduced for Porth and Ferndale.
