Outer Circle

As part of 11-11-11, a psychogeographic exploration of Birmingham’s Outer Circle bus route on November 11th in 2009, I chose to cycle the route and create a photographic record of the bus stops. By focusing identikit street furniture placed at strategic points along Europe’s longest bus route, I hoped to develop an understanding of Birmingham, from the echoes of the villages consumed by the suburban sprawl to the marks made by the city’s broad demographic. To the casual observer Birmingham looks like a single entity, but is it? This 82 page squarebound book contains all the photos in order, a map and essays by Pete Ashton and Jon Bounds.
