People from the first two outings of the project. Posted in order shot.
Roger was the first person I approached on this project and he was kind enough to let me take his photo. Originally from Small Heath, an area neighbouring Sparkbrook, Roger now lives in Knowle but happened to be using one of the many hand car wash services whilst his wife did some shopping. 
Muhinder was the first subject I had some difficulty communicating with as I didn’t speak his language. Despite this I gathered that he had emigrated from India about 40 years ago and operates a local embroidery factory. In hindsight this was partly given away by the more elaborate stitch work I remember on his clothing. 
Aftab was standing in the doorway of his Chicken.com fast-food restaurant when he happily agreed to be part of this project. He has been working there for two years and business is going well – which explains the huge number of chicken-based fast food shops opening around the UK. I was even offered some food which was most welcome on the way back of my six mile trip that day. 
Salim was instrumental in persuading a couple of his of friends to have their photo taken after I approached the group which was very helpful. Salim worked for Rover in various locations across England and the West Midlands for 40 years before taking early retirement from the late Longbridge plant in south Birmingham.
