2016 Exhibitions

# Nicklin Unseen


Monday, 14 March to Sunday, 20 March 2016


No restrictions


Outdoor, University Centre



This outdoor photographic exhibition examines the work of Birmingham photographer, Phyllis Nicklin, and catalogues the wide-ranging changes that have shaped the city.

Phyllis Nicklin was a lecturer in the Department of Extramural Studies at the University of Birmingham during the 1950s and 1960s. During her time in post, she took thousands of photographs from across the city, which have remained in the University archive.

David Oram, creator of social media phenomenon Brumpic – an online platform that shares photos capturing Birmingham throughout its rich history – has now brought these photos back to life. The photographs capture the city in a state of transition, as old gives way to the modern.
Presented by Colmore Business District and Brumpic with support from Heritage Lottery Fund, University of Birmingham and JMP Consultants Ltd.
