These Swansea billboards are enlargements of paintings by the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery Welcome group in Swansea. Some are self portraits, others are of volunteer ‘models’-Patricia and Laura, who posed in Colombian traditional dress, Ganimet who wore Turkish dress and my son Kwesi.

Photographs by Hanan and Avine Beko. Film by Tom Cheesman.
