Multistory commissioned Magnum photographer Martin Parr @martinparrstudio to create a photographic portrait and archive about everyday life in the Black Country. Between 2010 and 2014, Martin visited factories, foundries, pubs, working men’s clubs, shops, markets, temples, mosques, churches, St George’s day celebrations, Royal Wedding street parties, horticultural shows and dog training classes, capturing and celebrating the unique mix of communities living in the area.
For the Blast! Festival, a selection of Martin’s images will be exhibited as part of a community exhibition at The Art Yard where Sandwell’s creative communities are encouraged to submit artworks inspired by the themes explored in Martin’s work. This exhibition is part of the Cradley Heath Creative Arts Festival which will feature a full programme of events and workshops curated by @cradleyheathc
