Diamond People Exhibition at Crickhowell

Posted on 20 Feb 2018

The Diamond People photography exhibition will be on show at The Studio, CRiC, Beaufort Street, Crickhowell from Tuesday 20th February until Sunday 4th March 2018.

The Studio is opposite the CRiC Information Centre and is open from 10am – 5pm (Monday – Saturday) and 10am – 1pm (Sunday).

Diamond People is a photographic portrait exhibition featuring twenty one pictures of just some of the great people who have helped make the Brecon Beacons what it is today and tells the diverse story of the park.  The exhibition which was part of the National Park’s 60th year celebrations has toured around various venues and the pictures have been published within the National Press.

Photographer of the exhibition, Billie Charity from Hay-on-Wye said; “Working on this project has introduced me to breath-taking parts of the Brecon Beacons I never knew existed, and also to some of the truly brilliant people who live and work there.”

Julian Atkins, CEO of Brecon Beacons National Park Authority added; “Diamond People is a great exhibition that shows how much diversity and activity there is across Brecon Beacons National Park; from Nepalese women assisting us with footpath maintenance, to our partnership with the National Trust to working with private businesses.  The Brecon Beacons National Park has many different strands and this exhibition displays these multiple faces of the National Park clearly and artistically.”
