This body of work is a portrait of Central and Eastern European communities living in Sandwell, home to the biggest Polish population in the UK. Above geopolitical division, and rhetoric fuelled by media following the EU referendum of 2016, this series of photographs, spanning two years, looks at people living in the local area who have welcomed us in to their lives, teaching us about their history, their identity looking to the future, and what binds a community to make somewhere home. . So many discussions led back to nature. Sights and smells that evoke nostalgia, remind you of somewhere when you were a kid, or provide the comfort of familiarity. In Slovakia before moving to Sandwell, Jan and Ivana would go foraging in the woods – so it seemed an obvious place to make some pictures. @jon_tonks . . . . . . #jontonks #multistory #sandwell #blastphotofest2019 #portraitphotography #documentaryphotography #filmphotography #portrait #acemidlands #ambitionforexcellence #sandwellcouncil #photography #community #artsfestival

My favourite shot from the Lawns. It was the last time it was hot enough to bring the horses out. As they attached the cart the group dived into some sweets and I spotted Lewis’s brother for the first time. His little cheeky face and inventive bike attachment made a magical combo. . .

Great 3-page piece in yesterday’s Observer Review on ‘A Room of Their Own’, our new project with #MagnumPhotographer Susan Meiselas and women in a Black Country refuge. “Turning its pages, the first thing you notice is how startlingly few people appear in the pictures she took over several months in 2015 and 2016 (a period when, as their funds were cut, the refuges “had to downsize fairly dramatically”). On the rare occasions when a woman can be seen, her face may be obscured; the presence of any children is usually indicated only by the sight of scattered toys and tiny T-shirts drying on radiators.” – Rachel Cooke Made in partnership with @CreativeBlackCountry #ACEMidlands #MagnumPhotos #SusanMeiselas #womeninrefuge #Multistory #BlackCountryStories
