Comments on Martin Parr Black Country Stories
A very comprehensive archive of the Black Country
I enjoyed it and it was a fascinating experience. (Age 8)
I loved it and I want to come again (Age 6)
Brilliant. Captures the area’s traditions and shows many old traditions/customs that have collapsed
The fact that this project has happened is good enough
Good images such as image 713
I think your images of West Brom are greats. Show true character of town.
Fantastic, thoughtful, amazing show! Thank You!
Thoroughly enjoyed the show
Some photos I recognise. Well done.
Is nice to be here
I like this exhibition as it shows the Black Country as a multi-cultural community
A pictorial love-letter to an area and its’ people. I particularly liked the sweet factory images
I like it. So life…
Not too bad
Good! Love the candy pictures!
Great Photos – same as downstairs- should be more photos in such a huge area
Good Photos ☺
Good sound and photos
Good photos upstairs and downstairs
There’s something about these images that is un-Parr like. I’m not sure why – respect perhaps?
Ideal to show future generations
This is my first visit to West Bromwich in 38 years. It will be another 38 before I return. The odd photograph is ok, but almost none stand out. My mother is a member of the RPS and could do as well if not better. I welcome the existence of the gallery but surely money that could have been fund for a swimming pool and a cinema. Need sorting of priorities.
My children really enjoyed the photos
Could do with real art work in the international gallery
He deserves his fame. Superb work!
Its very, very, very interesting hmmm…
Refreshing (I think Mr Clayton above is missing the point!) An interesting perspective of the Black Country
Wow its sik
I like it here its good cool
Beautiful, eye opening… For a stranger it gives a great sense of place and makes me think more of the culture of my own home town
An insightful view of the reality of life in West Bromwich
Nice photos, but to many people, not enough buildings
Great representation of my area. Nobody smiles
Loved the accent liked the talking
Great to see the area I grew up in like this – I loved it ☺
Nice to see pics of people in our area
Good excellent seeing really people
Photojournalism student at Staffs Uni – happened to stumble upon this – amazing! Martin Parr is a massive inspiration ☺ trying to convince my boyfriend!
Twitter/Dadge – good one!
Thanks Multistory for doing this/ Great
Would look better in frames, great
My roots are in West Brom I just loved all of the photographs as they captured every aspect of the wonderful, warm hearted Black Country people. Thank you. I shall revisit the Public again and again
Love the pictures of Teddy Grays – I can smell the sweets in the air
Standards are high
Excellent work Kiddo
Very relaxing and very good. Fascinating pictures. Lovely place
Good pics and calming
Enjoyed our visit. Loved everything about it. Well done
Bit sad really how Sandwell use to be with all the busy industry and how it is now. But good stuff
Finally on the 3rd floor something to see and focus on!
Very interesting exhibition would like to have seen more of the industrial landscape of Black Country
Very lovely and beautifull
Excellent work. Keep it up…
The real deal. Conservative politicians wouldn’t recognise the culture
Very enjoyable community poetry
RPS Midlands digital imaging best by far
It is very exciting place its very nice thank you ☺
Is vear nice
My comment is that the exb is interesting
Admirable mixing of humour and respect
Disappointed by choice of photos selected. Larger prints are better to view than smaller set. We have seen a better standard of Martin Parr images in the past.
Disappointing no kids
First visit, Il come again
My Auntie Christine is in the picture of teddy grays
Waste of money, boring, desperate
Fantastic storytelling, sense of place, wish there was a book!
Wonderful evening of inspirational images
Wonderful curation, love how so many photos look so impressive
Love the elephant photo because I collect elephants
When do we get to buy the book?
The softer you speak the more I listen

Comments on the Ramp and during Ordinary Extra Ordinary exhibition Summer 2013
Very good if you can find a proper use of this building
Love this place
Great lots to learn
It is such a shame it will be closing
came with my young children who loved being able to interact with exhibits, until top floor & told off for touching.
How are kids understand its ok to touch some but not others?
Suggest things not be touched are kept out of reach
Very interesting would have liked to have seen more of sandwell
Love this place
