Cardiff before Cardiff is an exhibition which stands apart from the majority of photographic shows. It comprises of and combines social history, a mystery story, social media, classic documentary narrative and, above all, some amazing imagery.
The original work, by Cardiff photographer Keith S Robertson, lay undiscovered for years until it was found by another photographer, Jon Pountney. Through a blog, Facebook and local media coverage, Jon set about finding out what became of Keith and the many subjects of his incredible photographs.
This exhibition is the result of Jon’s efforts to discover more about Keith’s work, whilst also reimagining the images for a new generation. It is the story of an old Cardiff, of its people and of the modern city it is today, all seen through the eyes of two unique yet distinctive photographers.
