‘All stories are equal, but some stories are more equal than others…’

Birmingham Review has subjects & subcultures that have especially piqued our interest. We want to follow these stories – nurturing an audience for each through regular content, reader responses & further, in-depth coverage.

So the below are firmly on our radar, click on each picture or link & follow us as we follow them. Support Our Stories:

Spud @ Spear Studio - by Katja Ogrin - 9x6A Birmingham Tattoo
Birmingham hosts a growing tattoo industry, in both size and reputation, with an array of internationally recognised artists developing their art in the city. John Noblet follows Birmingham’s tattoo scene, profiling artists & studios around the city – alongside a few who creep along its borders.

Psycho - Film poster - 9x6Film Club
Jonathan Glen follows the Birmingham film & cinema scene; from p/reviews of national releases being showcased in the city, to grass roots productions springing up on our streets. When the time is right Birmingham Review wants to evolve this into a regular Film Club with our own Mr Glen at the helm – so probably not many Liam Neeson thrillers.

Rhiannon Mair @ Ort Cafe, Sat 1st Mar '14 - by Spence CaterThe Gallery
Birmingham Review has been blessed by some fantastic photographers, and knows more that work in the city without the appreciation they deserve. So we’re building The Gallery – a place to exhibit, showcase & promote** shots from our regular & favourite contributors, with a note from our editor about each shoot.

For everything else there’s the Bham Review Flicker of pics – click here
