“Axilla”, 2018 | Jon Pountney
Jon has been working across Wales for the last 18 years; firstly as a commercial photographer, but in more recent times he has been able to cover the subjects and documentary projects that he is passionate about. He has been freelance since 2005, working with clients which include the BBC, Dwr Cymru, the Principality, National Theatre Wales and the Wales Millennium Centre. In addition to these commissions, he has self funded a number of projects since 2010. These have been an opportunity for him to explore his interest in social history and sense of place. The most successful of these projects was "Cardiff before Cardiff" which culminated in the largest exhibition of photography to take place in the Wales Millennium Centre in 2012.
We asked Jon about his featured series for the blog.
