Handsworth SP
@brian.homer, @bishton and John Reardon set up the Handsworth Self Portrait Project in 1979 in response to the way photographers and journalists tended to visit briefly and portray the area as only having problems. They wanted to show the people themselves in a more positive light without the distractions of the environment so used a plain backdrop. The shots were taken over five Saturdays in Autumn 1979 on the street outside their office in Grove Lane, Handsworth, Birmingham. .
