We are interested in working with artists who see the act of archiving from social and cultural perspectives questioning who and what is being recorded and which stories are being represented?⁣⁣
Black Country Sikhs is told in the words of local people. The interviews raise many of the issues being tackled by the Sikh community. There are stories of the violent racism encountered and the resilience that it took to carry on. ⁣⁣
The book is illustrated with photography from local archives and also from the work of photographers who documented the life of Black Country people over the years, such as Anand Chhabra, John Fallon, John Harris, Nick Hedges, Brendan Jackson, Naresh Pall, Martin Parr, Larrie Tiernan and Herbert Walters. The book was produced by Graham Peet.⁣
