DESCRIPTION

A collection of fresh, dynamic images from celebrity photographer Cambridge Jones.  He's been described as Britain's answer to Annie Leibovitz and he is flattered with the comparison, but in the audio accompanying the exhibit he explains that his process is more relaxed and spontaneous.

Portraits feature Anthony Hopkins, Shirley Bassey, Michael Sheen, Robert Plant and more.  A common DNA joins photographer and subject and that's simply and magnificently - Wales.

At the end of each shoot, Cambridge asks his subjects to talk briefly about who or what inspired them. Visitors can enjoy listening to these comments and thus get the full impact of the "talking picture."
