Extinction Rebellion

Photography: Extinction Rebellion

Photographer Nigel Pugh took to the streets of Cardiff this week to photograph the activists and campaigners of the #ACTNOW marchers of the global Extinction Rebellion movement against man made climate change.

You can find out more about Cardiff Extinction Rebellion on their Facebook page here, and help support them via their fundraising page here.

Extinction Rebellion is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse.

About Extinction Rebellion:

Nigel Pugh has been a practising artist for twenty four years, concentrating solely on photography for the last five years. Born in Mid Wales the woods and rivers that surrounded him were his playground, place of solace and exploration. He absorbed the wildlife and it’s nature, whilst intuitively responding to the ever-shifting light upon the abundant textures and landscapes. During eighteen years of living in Mid Wales he began to note the ecology dwindling, and left wondering, why? Forty years on he estimates that 80% of the river ecology alone, in his home area has disappeared.
