Quotes from the Author
"In the 1990s I was considered slightly odd taking photos of the modern city. Now it is great to see so much emphasis on photography in Birmingham."

My hope was to try and produce this book for Christmas 2015 as I felt we need to celebrate so much that has come to fruition in the city this year."
"I was so lucky with the couple of people I contacted at the start to discuss the project. They were encouraging and clearly excited about the project and gave me practical help and support."
"When people did not want to help me that was fine - I had more ideas than time anyway so I just moved on to the next assignment."
"Some in the public sector kept explaining to me how their budgets have been slashed and they had no money to do anything. My observation is; "Just get over it"."
