We first met Richard Jones, Photographer when he joined us on a visit to the wind farm with Rhigos Primary School in April 2015. Since then the construction team have been helping to facilitate visits to site for him, so that he could take some shots of the construction team and their works for his short film Energy+Notion. The film documents the transition from non-renewable to renewable energy in the South Wales Valleys. How Richard managed to get two years of work into about 12 minutes of film we have no idea!

We went along to the launch of the film last Friday and it will be screened in various venues in the coming weeks. Today some of the photos feature in The Guardian. View the article here.
