Everyday life captured through your own snapshots

Sometimes a single snapshot can capture a whole story. It can remind us of a special time or place, trigger an important memory, or simply show us how life is always changing. 

In this section you can upload one photo that has been taken around the Black Country. Using our online submission form you will have the opportunity to tell us about your photo - who’s in it, where it was taken, and why it’s important to you.  If you have more than one photo that you want to share please also upload them here, and we will get in touch with you about them.

Please explore some of the snapshots and stories that people have already shared with us as part of the project.
