Rhonda Wilson, founder and director of Birmingham’s Seeing The Light, interviewed as part of a German project.

“… Birmingham is one of the hardest cities to work in for an agency that represents image makers because Birmingham doesn’t really have a very good handle on its own image. So, it tends to use very out-of-date marketing pictures, it doesn’t invest very well in photographs that, I suppose, make visible the contemporary life of the city. … In a way, there are only, I think, a few people in Birmingham who do realize the true impact of what we’ve done. Photography is not one of the creative industries, as defined by the Department of Media, Culture and Sports.”

There’s video too, although it’s in the RealMedia format.
