Photographer Emyr Jenkins is exhibiting a selection of his street images taken during the 2015 Rugby World Cup in Waterloo Tea Rooms in the Wyndham Arcade in the centre of Cardiff.

Although hosted by England, six group games and two quarter finals of the 2015 Rugby World Cup were played in the Millennium Stadium. The febrile match day atmosphere in the city that balmy Indian summer was special, like some mad carnival. The fans dressed up in packs, came early and partied before every game – no rivalry, no animosity and no inhibition. No one cared about or even noticed a stranger in their midst, taking their picture.

There will be Private View to launch the exhibition from 6.30pm on Thursday 6th July - and Emyr has kindly invited any ffotonistas who can make it to join him!
