Sale price £22.00 Regular price

Black Country Type is an ongoing photographic project by the artist Tom Hicks. His colourful photography project has gained international attention and his work has been featured in international art magazines, including the US contemporary photography magazine NOICE.

Tom’s images focus on words, typography, handmade lettering and signs. He also photographs ‘types’ of architectural features and objects in the post-industrial landscape of the Black Country. 

His work has been exhibited widely, most recently in a solo exhibition at Wolverhampton Art Gallery. He has also collaborated on two books with the poet Liz Berry: I.D.S.T (The Modernist, 2020) and The Dereliction (Hercules Editions, 2021). Both books are available from Ikon shop.
