Back Home is an AR and photography project, in partnership with legendary photographer Vanley Burke. Vanley took beautiful black and white photographs of diverse Brummies, while we interviewed them about what ‘Back Home’ means to them. Their thoughts and stories were then attached to the photographs to be heard by scanning simple QR codes through smartphones.  

We toured the exhibition to the neighbourhood ‘Live Sites’ of the Commonwealth Games, alongside our How Were You project with artist Ben Jones. Thousands of Brummies got to enjoy the exhibitions and listen to the stories, right on their doorsteps.

We will continue to tour the exhibition to neighbourhood sites across the city over the next year. Watch this space for details.
