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. . . Geoffrey, Black Country Lungs, 2018  Corinne Noordenbos . . . . .
