"Photography transcends cultural and language barriers and gives people an opportunity to find an audience for what they think and feel," said Mr Jackson.

He added: "Birmingham is a wonderfully diverse place.

"It often has a negative perception but there is an overriding passion for the city from the people who live here and that comes out in the photographs."
