Hi this is Michelle, and this is my last post as part of my takeover. I often consider the space of the camera as one of performance. I am strongly drawn to a sense of theatre and the representation of the extraordinary in the ordinary and the curtains, lighting, and the relationship of the figure to both the harp and the space seems to encompass this well. .

What is important is my relationship with the people I work with and the reciprocity that occurs which is somewhat special for me – a specific look or gesture that becomes revealing. . Image Michelle Sank . . . . . #MultistoryTakeover #michellesank #MySelfMichelleSank

What I really enjoyed was the cross-over of both traditional and Western signifiers in dress, buildings, interior decoration and objects that represent a journey through time and a fluid history. . Image Michelle Sank . . . . . #MultistoryTakeover #michellesank #my.self

Hi this is Michelle, and it’s day two of my Instagram takeover. All the images were taken in the young person’s bedroom. As this is a very personal space I wanted to include the decoration and mementos in the rooms as metaphor’s for their identity and personality.

My practice is concerned with the notion of encountering, collecting and re-telling. I am interested in creating sociological landscapes, interplays of human form and location that can resonate sociological, cultural and psychological narratives. . With My.Self I wanted to document the diversity of young people living in the area – both what it means to be a young person in today’s society as well as that of living in the Black Country. I am also interested in the way that body language and dress represent a rite of passage. . Image Michelle Sank . . . . . #MultistoryTakeover #michellesank #my.self

Hi, I’m Polly @pollybraden In 2017 the writer, Sally Williams and I spent a lot of time driving between Bristol, London and West Bromwich visiting the ten people who feature in our new book, Out of the Shadows: The untold story of people with learning disabilities. . . The first photo I would like to share is of Roy. Aged 14, Roy went into the gym at Saltwells children’s home with a box of matches and set fire to a pile of mattresses. He stood outside and watched the dramatic blaze. He says he saw it as a way of ending his ordeal. . . . . . #outoftheshadowsCJS #multistorytakeover #pollybraden #sallywilliams #midlandsartscentre #birmingham #photography #documentaryphotographs #journalism #multistory #community #art #autism #ACEmidlands #pollybraden #sallywilliams #criminaljustice #macbirmingham #prisonreform #artist #contemporaryphotography #participation #collaboration #MultistoryArtist #prison #prisons #supportedliving #NHS

This is @corinnenoordenbos taking over the #Multistory Instagram to highlight the launch of my book and exhibition Black Country Lungs. This is Janice. She suffers from #COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). When Multistory invited me to the Black Country, I took the opportunity to explore health issues. Statistics showed that this post- industrial community has more health-related problems than other areas of the UK. I decided to focus on COPD and lung problems. I was curious about the connection between the Black Country and ‘black lungs’. . . The exhibition is now on show @lightwoodshouse until 31 May 2018. The book can be purchased from the Multistory shop. . .
