Over the last month I have started a new commission in Nottingham and have been making work in Hyson Green, an area that I am slightly familiar with. Last year I walked though parts of Hyson Green when walking to my MA lectures a Nottingham Trent University. It always felt very multicultural and clearly home to a variety of cultures. I have since found out it has the largest ethnic minority population in the city with many shops and supermarkets offering foods from Arabia, Eastern Europe, Iran, India, Pakistan, Russia, West Africa and Southern Africa. It is amazing to witness how diverse this place is and how small a space it occupies in Nottingham. Here is a recent portrait of Soran, a local business man who works in the area and originally from Kurdistan.
