MB Photography | Projects | River Tawe


The River Tawe is Swansea's main river, giving rise to the Welsh name for the City - Abertawe (literally the mouth of the Tawe).

These images take a documentary approach to capturing the route of the entire river from it's source in the Black Mountains to its emergence in the Bristol Channel - the river's surface appearing in all but the first image. They aim to capture the significant changes in the river and its surroundings from it's start as a mountain stream to its conclusion in the marina and shipping port of Swansea.
