Internationally renowned photographer Vanley Burke has been documenting the world around him since 1967. His photographs of the African Caribbean community in his home in Handsworth are a unique record of the community from the inside. His photographs show the people of Handsworth at work and play. These images are complemented by posters, fliers and other community-produced literature forming an in-depth picture of the place in which he lives and works.
A catalogue of Vanley’s collections can be found on our Connecting Histories website and more images and information about Handsworth’s vibrant past and present are available through our Digital Handsworth website.
