This is @corinnenoordenbos And it’s my last post for this week’s #multistorytakeover. This series presents COPD a health issue that is hugely influenced by working and living conditions. Almost everyone we photographed had smoked, a widespread habit in the post-war Black Country. But alongside chronic ill-health we saw men and women who had loved their jobs, and who spoke with pride of their role as members of a hardworking, committed and caring community. This strong bond keeps their spirits high and their lives, however limited, a pleasure. . . The exhibition of photographs and moving images is at Lightwoods House, Smethwick from 17 – 31 May 2018. The book can be purchased from Multistory’s website. . .

Listening with patience for people tell the stories of their lives is a slow and exacting process. Respect is essential; it takes time to connect with someone and become close. Eventually we achieved a real sense of intimacy and the COPD sufferers opened up to us and told us extraordinary stories of their lives. They trusted us and we feel deeply indebted to them [email protected] . .

This is @corinnenoordenbos taking over the #Multistory Instagram to highlight the launch of my book and exhibition Black Country Lungs. This is Janice. She suffers from #COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). When Multistory invited me to the Black Country, I took the opportunity to explore health issues. Statistics showed that this post- industrial community has more health-related problems than other areas of the UK. I decided to focus on COPD and lung problems. I was curious about the connection between the Black Country and ‘black lungs’. . . The exhibition is now on show @lightwoodshouse until 31 May 2018. The book can be purchased from the Multistory shop. . .
