Following the successful showing of Trevor Appleson’s portrait photographs of carefully selected demographic groups made in his makeshift portable studio in Birmingham at mac, the Library, who co-commissioned the project, will be acquiring a series of prints by the artist to add to an existing holding of his work acquired in 2010. In this new body of work, Appleson took to the streets of Birmingham to look at youth culture now. In the show which included over 70 classic portrait photographs, Appleson reflected the cultural diversity of young people in the city, their infinite styles and tribal affinities. He is now working on a publication with the University of Birmingham.
