Strange and Familiar

Strange and Familiar: Britain as Revealed by International Photographers.

Curated by British photographer Martin Parr, Strange and Familiar considers how international photographers from the 1930s onwards have captured the social, cultural and political identity of the UK.


From social documentary and portraiture to street and architectural photography, the exhibition celebrates the work of leading photographers, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Rineke Dijkstra, Robert Frank and Garry Winogrand. Bringing together over 250 compelling photographs and previously unseen bodies of work, Strange and Familiar presents a vibrant portrait of modern Britain.


The fully illustrated exhibition catalogue is also available along with a range of photography books, cameras, accessories and fun mementos of Britain’s heritage and food culture.

Exhibition continues to 29 May 2017
