Black Country Lungs is a collaboration between Multistory, Dutch photographer Corinne Noordenbos, and people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Corinne has a long standing interest in exploring the human condition by photographing health issues, often with a personal starting point – her Alzheimer’s series was made after her mother was diagnosed with the disease. For her first UK commission, Corinne worked with Multistory between June 2015 and May 2017 researching, observing, recording, meeting and photographing people in hospital and at home. This is a first opportunity to see the finished work.

Multistory is a community arts company based in Sandwell in the Black Country. Multistory invites artists to make art with, for and about local people in response to their lives and experiences. This project explores the connection between the Black Country and ‘black lungs’.

Presented by Multistory in partnership with Research & Cultural Collections
