Includes bibliographical references (page 284).
Twenty-three photographers from countries around the world offer their own perspectives on British society. British photographer Martin Parr has selected works, dating from the 1930s to today, that capture the social, cultural, and political identity of the UK through the camera lens. These images range from social documentary and street photography to portraiture and architectural photography and offer a reflection of how Britain is perceived by those outside its borders.
