The Church of St Martin in the Bull Ring, Birmingham

Two journeys across the centre of Birmingham – Photographs by Graham Stubbs & Gil Gillis

This exhibition is called “Crossing” because it is made up of two journeys at right angles across the centre of Birmingham.  These journeys were both guided by elements of the city’s Christian heritage.

Gil’s journey followed the Quaker Trail from Bull Street and Old Square in the East across to Five Ways in the West.  Graham followed a North – South line of churches from the now empty Trinity on Camp Hill to St Paul’s in the Jewellery Quarter.  This line passes St Martin in the Bull Ring and crosses the Quaker trail by St Philip’s cathedral.

These sites acted as beacons guiding us along our way on two very different routes.  They show us often forgotten elements of our history along with a snapshot of Birmingham today.  Together these cross sections of the city, along with Graham and Gil’s very different photographic styles, provide us with a fascinating and thought provoking view of the changing centre of England’s second city.

Meet the Artists: Tuesday 2nd July 2:30 – 4:00pm
