For 100 years Longbridge was the site of the Longbridge Car Factory. Situated on the outskirts of Birmingham, UK, the factory was at one time the largest car plant in the world, employing thousands of people and producing iconic cars such as The Mini.   Since the collapse of the factory in 2005 the area has been going through a massive regeneration scheme.  The site is now home to a retail park, offices and homes. This project explores the dramatic shift in local identity documenting the new forms of work & production within Longbridge, and raises wider questions about how the way we live and work in the UK has changed.
