Black Country Type is the first major retrospective of the work of artist Tom Hicks.
Taken between 2017 and 2023, the images document the post-industrial landscape of the Black Country.
With a strong emphasis on colour, Hicks focuses on words, typography, handmade lettering and signs. He also photographs ‘types’ of architectural features, objects and structures.
Black Country Type features over 100 images, many of which are published here for the first time.
