Wolverhampton School of Art

Photographic archive exhibition on display at Ludlow College

A photographic project by Photography course leader, Dr Peter Day and photography graduates Jack Nelson and David Shepherd, originally shown at the Light House Media Centre in the summer of 2014 has now moved to Ludlow College where it will be display throughout January 2015.

The Heath Town Project is a photographic archive of some of the people living and working in Heath Town, Wolverhampton in 2013. The project explores the idea that individuals in any one community are inextricably linked to and judged alongside the people whom they live with and amongst, and aims to create an alternate view. These images and their accompanying stories are an introduction to the personalities and identities of the individual inhabitants of Heath Town, a small yet diverse area of Wolverhampton.  Rich in migrants and the inner city working classes, Heath Town is home to people from no fewer than 46 countries, as well as a deep and vibrant community of elders. 

The project is part of the work undertaken by the Heathfield Park Local Neighbourhood Partnership, which is producing a neighbourhood plan for the area and photography projects created by the University of Wolverhampton.  The initial stages of the plan included undertaking a household survey, the findings of which identified that the image and identity of the neighbourhood are deemed crucial to the area’s development and regeneration in the future.
