Exhibited in “Cometogether”, Shoreditch, London
This work is a project exploring the rich cultural diversity and history of the Bullring Market which has been open for over a century in Birmingham. I combine reportage, documentary illustration with an anthropological approach to my research that explores the multiple narratives, both explicit and hidden, in the market place. As an outsider myself I explore techniques and methodologies from a cross cultural perspective to create an ongoing and dynamic record of an ever changing community that reflects the on the multi layered history, texture and community of the market as a site of commerce and manifestation of emergent immigrant culture.
