Ah, South Wales. Just when you think you’re getting the hang of all the things that happen here, one day someone turns around to you and says ‘you do realise the world’s largest Elvis Impersonator festival takes place just down the road in Porthcawl, right?’.
Photographer Lorna Cabble headed to Porthcawl for The Elvies, to capture the colour and wonder of its participants. There was a BBC documentary about the festival a few years ago that I’m sure you can still find if you look hard enough. I’d write more, but really, it’s a thing you need to see for yourself …
Thanks Lorna! Keep track of Lorna’s photography projects at the Lorna Cabble Photography Facebook page
Gutted that you missed it? Make sure you keep an eye on the Elvies website for details of next year’s festival.
