Postcards From Great Britain

Extracts from a media release issued by Shutter Hub

London, 2016

Postcards from Great Britain is a large scale project from photography organisation Shutter Hub, which invites photographers to share their visions of British culture through photographic images to create conversations and exchange.  Pop-up exhibitions are being organised in locations across Europe, with related events, showcasing thousands of postcard-sized images. Every single image which is submitted to Postcards from Great Britain will become part of an archive catalogue, to be housed in libraries and archives around the world, and 100 images will be selected for a collectable postcard set.

Brighton, April 2018

At a significant time in European history this project sets out to document and share aspects of British culture, spanning all genres of photography, and collating images which include social, political, historical, traditional and observational responses.  Amongst the many exhibitions and events across Europe….highlights include a Symposium at Cambridge University and a moving exhibition on the North Sea, in partnership with DFDS Seaways and their Newcastle to IJmuiden crossing.

With interest from the V&A and other impressive institutions, Postcards from Great Britain has already attracted the support of Fujifilm, and the archive has been pre-selected for the Cambridge University Library and Lightbox Photobook Library in Taiwan, amongst others. The project will launch in Haarlem on the evening of 05 March 2020….This will be the first showing of photographs from the project and will showcase the work of over 100 photographers. More details and updated exhibition information can be found on www.shutterhub.org.uk  

I submitted five photographs (3 above) – some are included in the exhibition, but I don’t know which.
