We're really excited to be hosting an in-store exhibition of photgraphs by a much respected friend of PROVIDE, who simply goes by the name, Dave. Working in traditional black and white 35mm film with a number of different cameras, Dave has collected a series of images of buildings around Birmingham built by local architect John Madin, some of which will not be around much longer due to 'Forward' thinking local authorities who really enjoy demolishing buildings of local historical interest.John Hardcastle Dalton Madin was born in Moseley, Birmingham on 23 March 1924 and died on 8 January 2012. Madin was a...
