The third and final instalment this week of our look at the work of photographer Phyllis Nicklin can now be enjoyed.

The former University of Birmingham lecturer chronicled life in the city and the Birmingham Post this week has the first of two supplements called 'Nicklin Unseen' showing previously unseen pictures.

The series of images was taken during the 1950s and 60s but left untouched in a filing cabinet until being discovered by David Oram, the man who co-founded the Brumpic website and Twitter account with Melanie Reid.

David said: "What resonates the most with us about this collection is its simplicity and its honesty.

"Taken over a 16-year period, many of the images capture the beginning of the social housing revolution and the great changes taking place in Birmingham during this period.

"Nicklin, though, was clearly not an amateur photographer. Many of the subjects she chose to photograph must have been seen as mundane at the time she was taking them, however the composition of many of her images is extraordinary.

"These images would have been used to aid Nicklin's teaching at the university and she couldn't have imagined how significant her work would become in future years.

"It's the intention of Brumpic to celebrate the work of Phyllis Nicklin as widely as possible over the next 12 months.

"We will be working with a number of key partners to ensure the largest audience possible is reached and she gains the recognition she fully deserves."

The gallery above shows the final ten images from this week's supplement - click through here to see the first and second galleries - while next week's Birmingham Post will have the second pullout in print.
