In 2013 Tom Hunter was commissioned to create new work in two districts of Birmingham.  His work saw him finding, exploring and revealing places and spaces that were usually out of public view, closed off or accessible to only a few people in the city.  He made exquisite images of member’s clubs, temples, political chambers, heritage sites, factories and churches using a pinhole camera the pictures were rich and engaging.

The 60 new works were exhibited in the public realm in curated exhibitions in two public squares.   The exhibitions were sited in the business district and in the Jewellery Quarter.
