Talking Pictures at Wales Millennium Centre
A new photography exhibition showcasing the cream of the Welsh celebrity crop will open at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay in September.
Cambridge Jones hails from Llanidloes in Powys, and has snapped some of the showbiz world's most famous stars, including Al Pacino, Kevin Spacey and Sir Roger Moore.

For the new exhibition, Talking Pictures, Jones asked each of his sitters during their photo shoots about who had most inspired them. Their answers accompany each of the portraits in the exhibition as a personal soundtrack giving the audience a unique insight into their lives.

Figures from the Welsh music scene include singers Shirley Bassey, Bonnie Tyler, David Gray and Cerys Matthews; bands Stereophonics, Lostprophets and Feeder, and opera stars Bryn Terfel, Robert Lloyd and Katherine Jenkins.

Photographer Jones commented: "I want my photos to be more than 2D... a viewer reconnects with a famous person when they not only look at an image but also hear them speak about something they are passionate about."
Talking Pictures will run at the Wales Millennium Centre from 7 September to 25 October 2010. The exhibition has been developed in association with the Welsh Assembly Government and will also feature later in London, New York and Los Angeles.
