In January 2018 photographer Tom Ranahan was allowed access, by Birmingham City Council, to record the last days of the Birmingham Wholesale Food Markets. The modern markets, which opened in 1973 to replace the original 100 year old city centre markets, were about to relocate to a new site in Witton.

Tom Ranahan has exhibited widely in the UK and at international exhibitions in France, Italy, Ireland and Japan. He is currently showing work in the exhibition, Human Nature/Nature Humaine at the Jardin Botanique Galleries in Bordeaux.
