Multistory have invited Tom Hicks aka Black Country Type to deliver a talk on Zoom on 2 February, 6 to 7pm. He will be speaking about his approach to photography, the landscape of the Black Country and the ideas behind his work.
Tom Hicks is an artist, writer and curator from Kingswinford and his Black Country Type is an ongoing photographic project. In this series of images, he applies his unique aesthetic to the region, focusing on words, typography, handmade lettering and signs. He also photographs ‘types’ of architectural features, objects and the post-industrial landscape of the area.
This talk is part of the ‘Wednesbury Through the Lens’ project presented by Multistory and TekkinPix for the Wednesbury High Street Heritage Action Zone Cultural Programme. This is funded by Sandwell Council and Historic England and is being delivered by Multistory.
