About Black Country Type
Black Country Type is an ongoing photography project by artist Tom Hicks. In this series of images he applies his unique aesthetic to the region, focusing on words, typography, handmade lettering and signs. He also photographs ‘types’ of architectural features, objects and the post-industrial landscape of the Black Country.
His photobook I.D.S.T was published by The Modernist in 2020
Ikon in an internationally acclaimed contemporary art venue.
The walk will begin and end at the gallery and will include an opportunity to find out more about the work of The Modernist, including the new book “Birmingham: The Brutiful years”.
This is a photo walk and is aimed at photo buffs more so than architecture buffs (although the two are not mutually exclusive). Please bring a camera and expect a different vibe than our usual mooches and walks.

NB: Walk will be approximately 3 hours in length - this is an outdoor event and is at the mercy of the weather, please dress accordingly, and take extra care with road traffic and all those other on street hazards!
