Charlie Clewer was one of the eight artists exhibited as part of the Green Lens project at MAC, throughout August & September 2018.
This is Clewer’s accompanying text to the artwork:
I enjoy walking around the areas of Birmingham which were once home to thriving industries in the 19th and 20th centuries. One thing I have noticed is that no matter where I visit, and no matter how derelict these areas have become, nature is always present.
My images were taken in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter at War Lane Cemetery and show that even in the middle of a built up area with an industrial history, greenery and nature are still present and have been given the opportunity to thrive.
