Heath Town is a community project produced in association with Wolverhampton City Council and Wolverhampton University that creates an alternative view of the people and the identities of Heath Town, Wolverhampton in 2013. This is a brief snapshot of this community, rich in migrants and the inner city working classes. The photography in the Heath Town project demonstrates the transient and diverse nature of the lives of Heath Town residents. This community is home to people from over 46 countries including Slovakia, Somalia and the West Indies and the images examine how identities are created and defined, often by others.
