The Stratford Road Project aimed to produce a social document of people in Birmingham during 2011 and 2012. With the focus on a single arterial road carrying people from near the city centre to the suburbs and beyond, a cross-section of society could be taken. Whilst ultimately restricted in it’s ability to capture a true sample of the community, a diverse and multinational landscape is recorded. One-hundred people took part in the project which covers Sparkbrook, Sparkhill, Springfield, Hall Green and Shirley.
