Martin Parr’s Black Country Stories
The Martin Parr Foundation exhibits an exploration of West Midlands traditions
Between 2010 and 2014, Martin Parr was commissioned by Multistory to photograph the four boroughs of the Black Country. This extensive body of work looked at what remained of the Black Country’s traditions, such as chain making and confectionary production, as well as more modern features like the Merry Hill shopping centre in Dudley. The Martin Parr Foundation will present highlights from the show originally exhibited at The New Art Gallery Walsall and Wolverhampton Art Gallery in 2014/15.
