Product description

"Cardiff After Dark" is the first monograph by British-based Polish photographer Maciej Dakowicz. Dakowicz spent five years photographing the nighttime revelries that take place in Cardiff over the weekend. Focused around a few pedestrianized streets in the city centre, Dakowiczs images capture nightlife fueled by alcohol and emotions. The arc of an evenings entertainment is captured in these candid photographs, which reveal fun and hilarity as well as fighting and drunken exhaustion. There are stag nights and hen parties, men dressed as superheroes and women dressed as Playboy bunnies, mountains of discarded chip wrappers, arrests by the police, and lots and lots of posing for photographs. Dakowiczs images, at times shocking or upsetting, form an important documentary photobook of British urban life in the early part of the 21st century.
