Magnum Photographer, Martin Parr, has spent a year documenting life in the Black Country. Exploring modern day society and the cultural make-up of the region, Parr has painted a portrait of British life from his own unique perspective, creating an archive for the future. The collection which contains over 650 images, 60 of which will be on display at Light House, is now held by Sandwell Library. The work was commissioned by local community arts organisation Multistory, and captures and celebrates everyday Black Country living and working.
