Major photography project ‘This Birmingham: It’s all about the people’ launches.

Portrait and commercial photographer Richard Battye, has today launched the, “This Birmingham,” photography project, which is a follow-up to his hugely successful “This England,” exhibition that toured around the United Kingdom in 1999.

Richard’s aim is to uncover and tell the untold success stories of our city, so that they can inspire and encourage others to follow in their footsteps. At a time when Birmingham is going on to achieve new heights, we see great change around us. Never has there been a more apt moment to tell these stories and celebrate their success.

Richard, said: “I am incredibly excited about the launch of the project, I have met some amazing people and heard some fascinating life stories and I can’t wait to tell them.“

As well as capturing images, Richard will also be collecting stories. This will be an opportunity to discover the role that our city has played in the development of some extraordinary individuals, and through the power of social media, our friends at Birmingham Updates will be sharing these stories with the world.

Throughout this project, Richard will be finding and photographing some of Birmingham’s best and brightest, from up and coming talents to well-loved legends – Nominations are now open:

This Birmingham is founded by Richard Battye. The following Birmingham brands have supported the project: Bareface, Gensler UK, FleetMilne Property, Birmingham Updates, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Ikon Gallery, Beyond400, Creative Alliance, Invisible Artists and Visit Birmingham.
