Vanley Burke is a renowned photographer concerned especially with Black culture in Britain, he was born in Jamaica in 1951 and has lived in Birmingham since 1965. Alongside his numerous exhibitions, Burke is also an avid collector and his archive is vast, including posters, clothes, records and ornaments that provide an invaluable insight into the UK’s African Caribbean communities. Inspired by the collection and his family history Burke has created a new site-specific installation at MAC – a collage of Caribbean migration and settlement - that transforms the venue into a vibrant space.
