Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
More than a thousand photography negatives and three hundred prints taken by Cardiff photographer Keith S. Robertson during the late 1970s and early 1980s, were found whilst Warwick Hall in Gabalfa, Cardiff was renovated in late 2010. Discovered by Cardiff-based freelance photographer, Jon Pountney, it forms the basis of an exhibition depicting Cardiff’s history.
Although only 30 years old, the scenes of the city’s areas of Splott, Butetown and Adamsdown in Keith’s photographs seem a world away from the Cardiff that we know today. Mr Pountney used 35mm film throughout the project, and has also built a custom darkroom to print all of the photographs for the exhibition to stay true to the original work.
