Two dozen artists from countries around the world offer their own perspectives on British society. In a project that is unparalleled in its scope and scale, iconic British photographer Martin Parr has selected works, dating from the interwar period 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. The book features some of the leading figures of 20th and 21st century photography, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, Robert Frank, David Goldblatt, Candida Hofer, Sergio Larrain, Shinro Ohtake, Paul Strand and Garry Winogrand. From the Hebrides to Dover, Belfast to Cardiff, modern Britain comes to life from a fresh perspective-and the results are both strange and familiar.

At a time when individual rights are being contested and when those on the fringes of society feel deeply threatened, this powerful photographic compilation delivers a message of humanity and inclusiveness that transcends geopolitical and cultural boundaries. Works by critically acclaimed photographers including Bruce Davidson, Paz Errazuriz, Jim Goldberg, Danny Lyon, Mary Ellen Mark, Boris Mikhailov, Daido Moriyama, and Dayanita Singh cast a compassionate, unflinching eye on the worlds inhabited by transsexuals, hookers, hustlers, bikers, junkies, circus performers, gang members, survivalists, petty criminals, and others who live in the shadows, on the streets, and out of the public eye. Grouped by photographer and ranging in genre from portraiture to photojournalism, these images were selected for their authentic and humane perspective, as well as for their artistic brilliance. An important testament to photography's power to both expose injustice and provide affirmation for those outside the norm, this collection bears witness to the ways social attitudes change across time and space, and how visual representation can promote understanding and dialogue.
