WWF Earth Hour

Posted on March 26, 2017

I was hired by the World Wildlife Fund Cymru [WWF] to document their event outside the Senedd building, Cardiff on Earth Hour day.

Two Welsh musicians, The Gentle Good and Catrin Herbert, performed a couple of tracks infront of this large ‘message in a bottle’ installation by artist Lulu Quinn.

Check out the video highlights by James Harries and below are some pics of the excellent Gentle Good.

Uganda Street Art Mural Video

Posted on March 6, 2017

Travelled to Gwara gwara, Tororo, Uganda in November 2015 with UK based charity The Safe Foundation and documented their project and took numerous portraits.
I came back a year later to celebrate this welcoming community by producing a photo street art mural at Romo house.

My new photography street art piece in Uganda

Posted on November 10, 2016

I’ve just come back from the Tororo region of Uganda with the Safe Foundation charity, who were there on a project consisting of a clay oven build, cookery classes by Lia’s Kitchen and business planning sessions. Last year I documented the same project and got a range of photographs printed in Cardiff which I then brought with me on this trip. This large wall is on the outside of the volunteers accommodation called Romo house and was transformed into a gallery of the people from the local community.

This was a real team effort and massive thanks has to go to the staff at Romo house, Mary, Andrew, JoJo, the Safe foundation volunteers, Dicko, Lia, Georgia, Grant [my uk printer] and all the people who helped me to make this a reality – you know who you are.
