Self Portrait Birmingham would not have got off the ground without the support and encouragement of:
Graham Peet, Community Artist; Pete James, Head of Photographs Birmingham Library; James Yarker Director of Stan’s Cafe; Timm Sonnenschein, Photographer and Designer; Emma Jo Tucker, Photographer and Arts Activist; Roy Peters, Photographer; Brian Collier, The Flash Centre; Terry Potter, The Centre for Community Research; Gail Walters, Birmingham City Council Homelessness Team; all the staff and clients of The Snow Hill and St Basil’s who kindly helped set up the sessions and enthusiatically got involved; Jim Deaves, Matt Sadler and the rest of the team at Homer Creative for their support; Val Jenner for support above and beyond.
Thanks to everyone and of course not forgetting Derek Bishton and John Reardon who with Brian Homer ran the Handsworth Self Portrait sessions in 1979. Without them none of this would have happened.
