A time and a place

A time and a place celebrates Birmingham’s vibrant community. It is a snapshot of the people that live in the city; the lives that we live, the roles that we fulfil and the journeys that we travel.

In our time of travel and media, networks of information and transport link people and places with unprecedented speed. Birmingham and its community are connected to each other and the wider world by a system that overcomes time and distance.

The world’s grid of transport creates a space for travel, gathering, exploring and discovering. It allows times, places and people to come together and share their stories.

In photographs we capture a moment of these stories. Through lenses and perspectives, photographs tell the story of one time and one place that came together for one moment.

Featuring students, alumni and staff from Birmingham City University, A time and a place is inspired by the diversity of cultures, people, times and places that connect in Birmingham. It tells a tale of the people of Birmingham, the landscape that we compose, the history that we live and the journeys we travel.
