Publisher's Description

200 photographs that capture the face of a changing nation.

Portrait of Britain is an annual photography exhibition showcasing the best portraits taken by people throughout the country. The winning photographs, selected from BJP's open-call competition, are displayed on digital billboard screens nationwide – in train stations, airports, shopping centres and on high streets – and are seen by over 10 million people.

Now in its third year, the exhibition will re-launch on 1 September 2018 for one month but for the first time with this book. Portrait of Britain is a small, chunky hardback featuring 200 shortlisted portraits alongside information about each image and selected quotes from the photographers. Together these photographs celebrate the richness and diversity of a vibrant nation at a time of pivotal change.

'These magnificent photographs capture at once the great diversity and the inescapable identity of the British. Gay, straight, bisexual and non-normative; male, female and non-binary; old, young and in between — how can it be that these — every one a compelling identity in its own right — are nonetheless trumped by a Britishness as heavy and irresistible as a Dundee fruit cake?
- Will Self, from the introduction
