George Hallett

Description

This resource is part of the Connecting Histories resource, and draws on the collections of Birmingham City Archives. George Hallett is a South African photographer. In the early 1970s he was living in exile in London. Just before he left South Africa he had photographed District Six, an area of Cape Town that the apartheid regime was preparing to raze to the ground. In 1971 he was commissioned by the Times Educational Supplement to take photographs of Handsworth to illustrate an article entitled Handsworth: Caribbean Black Country. The article was written as a result of the Race in the Inner City report which had been published by the Runnymede Trust earlier in the year

Vanley Burke

Description

This resource is part of the Connecting Histories resource, and draws on the collections of Birmingham City Archives. Vanley Burke was born in the parish of St. Thomas, Jamaica, in 1951. He was sent a camera from his parents, who were living in England, for his 10th birthday. In 1965 he came to England to join his parents and had a choice between leaving his aunt his radio or his camera as a parting gift. He left her his radio. He began photography in earnest from around 1967 and made a conscious decision to document the Black community. The photographs capture his own experiences of being newly arrived in Britain, his encounters with the different landscape and ways of living, and the experiences of the wider African Caribbean community

We Face Forward: art from West Africa

Description

Website for series of art events in Manchester exploring the links between Manchester and West Africa as part of the London 2012 cultural festival. Forget everything you think you know about African art... And embrace all that you don’t yet know about the art, culture and creativity of West African artists today. Major new sculptural installations, painting, drawing, photography, textiles, video, sound and fashion ask us to consider global questions of trade and commerce, cultural influence, environmental destruction and identity. Challenging and humorous, curious, noisy, elegiac and eclectic – this is the dynamism of West African cultures today. This website is a record of the We Face Forward exhibitions and activities that took place across Manchester in 2012.
