About

Over the last 4 years, Magnum photographer, Martin Parr, has created a photographic portrait and archive of life in the Black Country through photography, film and oral histories. Martin has made many visits to Walsall, Wolverhampton, Sandwell and Dudley, meeting a wide range of local people. He has visited shops and markets, places of worship, football grounds, factories, pubs and clubs, dances and parties, cafés and restaurants, dog training classes, summer fà ªtes and street parties celebrating the Royal Wedding and Diamond Jubilee. Four specially commissioned films offer a fascinating insight into Teddy Gray's Sweet Factory in Dudley; the world of Black Country pigeon fancying; Stourbridge's Tudor Crystal and the coach holiday company JR Holyhead, based in Willenhall.
