I have recently become enamoured with two photo projects showing two very different sides to my home city, Cardiff.
- Cardiff at Night: a set by Maciej Dakowicz showing the debauchery that is quite typical of the city on weekend nights (I’ve posted on this previously).
- Cardiff Characters: the people who make Cardiff the city it is. From street performer Toy Mic TrevorÂ to Dirty Sanchez’sÂ Pritchard; Dan Green’s been photographing those people thatâ€”if you’ve spent any time in Cardiffâ€”you’ll recognise. A full set isÂ availableÂ on Flickr if you want to avoid the Flashtastic interface.
The official word on the cityÂ is slightly amusingâ€¦ in a cheesy, sales-pitch kind of way.
