Black Country Lungs is a photographic exhibition from a collaboration between Multistory and Dutch photographer Corinne Noordenbos. It tells the stories of people living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in Walsall and the Black Country through photographs and first hand testimonies. Corinne has a long standing interest in exploring the human condition by photographing health issues, often with a personal starting point – her Alzheimer’s series was made after her mother was diagnosed with the disease. For her first UK commission, Corrine worked with Multistory between June 2015 and May 2017, to research, observe, record, meet and photograph people in hospital and at home.
