Returning to the Wales Millennium Centre for his new exhibition of Valleys work 'Something Must Be Done', Jon Pountney is aiming to poke and prod people's perceptions of the modern-day South Wales Valleys and "...depict an area at the mercy of history, neglect, tradition and misplaced nostalgia".

Located on the first floor of the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay, the show is now open to the public until the 9th June 2015.

We joined Jon and guests for the show opening on Friday 8th May and grabbed a quick chat with him...
