Strange and Fa­mil­iar Bri­tain: as Re­vealed by In­ter­na­tional Pho­tog­ra­phers

Var­i­ous artists

Professional Photography - - Agenda -

Martin Parr cu­rates this eclec­tic show, which looks at how lead­ing in­ter­na­tional pho­tog­ra­phers such as Henri Cartier-Bres­son and Garry Wino­grand cap­tured the so­cial, cul­tural and po­lit­i­cal iden­tity of the UK from the 1930s. Cov­er­ing gen­res from so­cial doc­u­men­tary to ar­chi­tec­ture, the re­sult is an un­usual take on mod­ern Bri­tain as seen from an out­sider’s per­spec­tive.
