Two photos by Tim Zhou taken in Mumbles, Wales. He says 

“I came to the UK as a foreign student many moons ago. Incidentally and willingly, I stayed and became a Welsh man. I now live in West Cross, Swansea. During all the lockdowns, Mumbles was the main destination for my daily walks. A once bustling beauty spot was transformed and forced to adapt to the new reality. Despite the challenges faced by local communities, there was always a sense of optimism and hope in the area. I sought to capture that spirit of hope and optimism in my photography.”
