An exhibition exploring the boom and bust of the Spanish construction industry will start this weekend at a Cardiff Bay gallery.
The Gathering Clouds by Ben Roberts followed the growing crisis in the Spanish real estate sector for five years.
Mr Roberts noted when visiting Granada the “city had exploded beyong the confines of its motorway ring road, and new housing developments were appearing on the fields and mountainsides.”
His photos form a personal account of the situtation. Mr Roberts is a documentary photographer based in the South of England and has won numerous awards for his photography, including being nominated as one of the 30 new and emerging photographers in 2010.
The exhibition opens on Saturday 18th June at the Third Floor Gallery on Bute Street and runs until 24th July.
The gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday from 12noon to 6pm.
Third Floor Gallery are also offering a photography road trip for those interested in landscape photography.
The ‘Contemporary Landscape: The Road Trip’ runs from 22nd to 24th July and gives budding photographers the chance to travel across South Wales with aclaimed landscape photographers Ben Roberts and Hin Chua.
The trip costs £300 and details are available online, including a schedule for the trip.
