Vanley Burke: by the rivers of Birminam

Chambers, Eddie; Morris, Lynda, 1947-; Mac (Arts centre, Birmingham)

Vanley Burke has photographed the Jamaican community in Handsworth since the mid 1960s. His images reveal a great compassion for his own people, expressed in his image of the Africa Liberation Day crowds gathered in Handsworth Park. This book is published alongside an exhibition of the same name. It contextualises his images through a collage of quotes from the press on the history of immigration to Birmingham
