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!

Local Globalisation

 

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

 

Excellent Images

 

Just Brilliant!

 

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

 

Nice

 

I like it here its good cool

 

Looks great

 

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

 

Amazing, modern

 

Great ☺

 

Good

 

Fantastic

 

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!

 

Good ☺

 

Good ☺

 

Thanks Multistory for doing this/ Great

 

Would look better in frames, great

 

Its good

 

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

 

Beautiful photos!

 

Love the pictures of Teddy Grays – I can smell the sweets in the air

 

WHY?

 

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…

 

Superb!

 

The real deal. Conservative politicians wouldn’t recognise the culture

 

Brilliant

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

 

Wonderfully evocative!

 

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

 

Superb!

 

First visit, Il come again

 

Very interesting

 

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

 

Fantastic
