About: 'West Midlands Landscapes'

This work was funded by Multistory in West Bromwich, and was shown in 'The Public' in 2012.

The purpose of this project was to document the commercial/industrial landscape of the West Midlands, and to show how people are defined by that environment.

It is unsurprising that people's working lives are dominated by the commercial world, but these images illustrate how their leisure-time is also subsumed by the demands of the commercial economy, demands that the majority accept as normal. 

Theme: mass culture created and produced by an industry for a passive audience.
