Showing portraits gathered as part of a second year project whilst studying his University degree in Photography, Tony Charles' Pioneers of Welsh Pop exhibition is currently showing upstairs in the Old Library on the Hayes in Cardiff.
The project captures the pioneers of Welsh pop, rock, folk & entertainment from the 1960's and 70's who helped keep the Welsh language and culture alive.
The black and white images were shot in the studios of the School of Art & Design at Cardiff Metropolitan University and the studios at the Arts Academy, Bridgend College, Trade Street, Cardiff. Some were taken in North Wales at Portmeirion Village.
