Event Description

Six large format prints from an exhibition by one of the UK’s leading photographers, Martin Parr, will remain in The Public’s permanent collection, and be displayed for free in the gallery’s glass corridor from 2 February to 27 March.

Black Country Stories, commissioned by local arts organisation, Multistory, and exhibited at The Public between 11 November and 23 January, is a photographic archive of 667 photographs documenting the life of people in the Black Country and exploring the regions cultural make up. Throughout the exhibition, visitors were requested to help the West Bromwich arts centre select six photographs to add to their permanent collection by voting for their favourite images. (above)

The Public has selected six images which best represent the diversity and cultural make up of the Black Country. The images will remain in The Public’s collection for future visitors to enjoy.
