Black Country Living: Can Work Conquer All?
In 1978 Janine Wiedel was awarded a West Midlands Arts bursary to spend two years recording the region’s industries. Including images of chain making in Cradley Heath and Bilston’s iron and steelworks, Wiedel’s remarkable body of photographs reflect a rich social history and a way of life centred on work. Forty years on, what does the future of work in the Black Country look like? At a time of significant change and upheaval, can work still conquer all? Curated by Craig Ashley
