This is part of the London Festival of Photography

This exhibition takes place across two venues—be sure to visit both:
St Pancras International
and Dog Eared Gallery.

Embracing the spirit of patriotism with the upcoming Olympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, this show will present images from photographers working the length and breadth of the British Isles documenting the daily life, work and rituals of the British in their many incarnations.

A focus on street photography will be complimented by intimate documentary studies and portraits from a range of established practitioners including John Angerson, Nick Cunard, Peter DenchLiz HingleyZed Nelson, Martin ParrBen Roberts, Simon RobertsArnhel de SerraChris Steele-PerkinsEwen Spencer, Homer Sykes and Giulietta Verdon-Roe.. plus more to be announced soon.

This multidisciplinary exhibition will celebrate the extremes and quirks of life on our islands; from military funeral parades to centenarians; from pomp and pageantry to cottage industries; from Hackney in London to the most northernmost island of Orkney in Scotland, via New Brighton, the Black Country and beyond. St Pancras International will host large prints from each photographer on the concourse of the station.

It is rare that such a stellar collection of British artists are shown together in celebration of Britishness - this is one of the festival's headline exhibitions and should not be missed.
