Big thanks to our girl Pearl Thomas for taking over the We Are Cardiff Instagram throughout the month of May this year. Here’s a little bit about Pearl:
My name is Pearl Thomas and i’ve lived in Cardiff my whole life. I’m a 22 year old Photography student in Cardiff and Vale & i’ve been accepted to study Documentary Photography in Newport University in September.
Since starting course it has opened my eyes to different areas of art and photography that I have pursued. It has given me the knowledge to match my enthusiasm to create photographs and art work that I never thought I could.
Although Photography is a huge part of my life, my second passion is human rights. Which coincides with my photography. I like to explore neighbourhoods and communities in order to shed light on the way people live. I believe everyone deserves to live on this planet and no other person is above anyone else. I believe we should all come together rather than pushing people away based on anything.
Apart from human rights and Photography, I enjoy music gigs and festivals as well as just relaxing with friends and family.
I hope you enjoy my photographs – take a look at my website:
Pearl got some great snaps from around the city. Do you know where any of the following were taken?
Hope you enjoyed this month’s exploration on Instagram! For the month of June, we’ve Tom Beardshaw (long-time friend of the blog) taking snaps for us around the city. Here’s a little bit about Tom:
And remember, if you’d like to take control of the We Are Cardiff Instagram for a month, then give us a shout on firstname.lastname@example.org. You don’t need to be a professional photographer, just someone with a camera-phone and a healthy enjoyment of exploring your local area!
