Photographer John Briggs documents the changing face of Newport for a new book. Street singer Frankie is recognisable for his operatic voice echoing in the arcade next to John Frost Square.
Hen Party, High Street - "Newport is a hen party centre – just one glimpse of a camera flash will bring out the poses."
Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre, Kingsway, opened in 2005. "In contrast to Newport's Victorian architecture, it is a futuristic flagship building."
Old Green Crossing at Night - the city's busiest roundabout, next to the River Usk and the Town Bridge.
Pill Carnival - Newport's largest street celebration, funded and organized by local people, has been held on August Bank Holiday since the early 1990s. Thousands turn out to watch the parade and floats.
Bridge Street - "Walking over the picturesque 'nuts and bolts' truss bridge near the railway station these pedestrians step out in symmetry with the structure."
Alway, view of Llanwern Steelworks - "Largely demolished in 2005, Llanwern was the mainstay of the local economy for 40 years. The iconic blast furnaces and cooling towers were the most spectacular part of Newport's industrial skyline."
Newport Cattle Market, calf auction - "The cattle market dates from 1844, but scenes like this are now consigned to history. The last auction took place on 25 February 2009 and now a newly-opened supermarket stands on the site."
Newport City Footbridge - "A century separates the architectural styles and materials. Looming above the traditional terraced houses of Colne Street on the east bank of the Usk, the tall supports provide an arresting example of the civic regeneration."
River Usk: old wharf timbers and new housing. "These ancient maritime relics may be removed as riverside development continues." Newportrait by John Briggs is published by Seren Books.
