‘In ‘Side’ was an exhibition of new photographs chronicling life in and around Southside, on display in our Thorp Street Atrium.
Birmingham photographer Ross Jukes spent 12 months taking pictures in the Southside area, amassing a collection of more than 2,000 images. Ross was commissioned by Rockspring Property Investment Managers, owners of The Forum, a development of 333 apartments under construction on the site of the former ice rink in Pershore Street.
The exhibition was curated by a panel of independent judges including David Oram of Brumpic; Adrian Middleton, manager of Southside BID; James Wong, managing director of Chung Ying Restaurant Group and Tom Cullen, editor of I Choose Birmingham. The panel was chaired by Fiona Allan, Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Birmingham Hippodrome.
Thirty three images were on display, split into four categories: people, places, festivals and street art.
