What Does Britain Look Like? Portrait of Britain Vol 5 – Preview
The fifth edition of Hoxton Mini Press' annual portrait collection is here
‘Each year that I write this intro I think to myself, “Hmm, Britain?” And then, as hard as I try not to let it, my mood slightly slumps,’ writes Martin Usborn, co-founder of Hoxton Mini Press, in his publishers’ note to Portrait of Britain Vol 5. ‘Union Jack underpants,’ he mentions, ‘Full English,’ ‘Brexit,’ ‘the turbulent collective identity crisis of recent years’… What makes Britain? What does it mean to live here? In its fifth instalment in collaboration with British Journal of Photography, Portrait of Britain Vol 5 illustrates our nation in flux, offering the type of answers that these questions warrant: multitudes, variations, eclecticism. ‘We thrive in collaboration,’ Rachel Segal Hamilton adds in her introduction. ‘We find kinship in different places.’ Here are 10 of the 200 varied portraits found in the new book Portrait of Britain Vol 5, available to purchase now. £25, Hoxton Mini Press
