Jaskirt Dhaliwal-Boora

These portraits by Boora were in response to the Ernest Dyche archive and exhibition From City of Empire to City of Diversity, at The Library of Birmingham, 18 March - 18 June 2022. 

Boora also ran workshops with young people in 2021 reflecting on their own heritage and ideas of home. The collages they produced and collaborative portraits were an integral part of the exhibition.  

Sampad: "Our city’s changing population is shown through images from the Library of Birmingham’s important collections, including captivating portraits of people photographed by the Dyche studios over several decades.

The exhibition includes personal stories of migration and settlement by those who came to Birmingham and put down roots in our city."
