Publisher's Description

Another Country offers a lively, vital rethinking of British documentary photography over the last seven decades. This collection includes a diverse range of photographers working in an exciting array of photographic and artistic modes, encompassing images from iconic reportage to photo-text pieces, from self-portraits to political photo-collages. As Britain takes an increasingly significant place in the history of documentary photography, award-winning photography writer and critic Gerry Badger brings vital context and breadth to the conversation. Organized chronologically, each chapter spans a particular period of social and cultural history, focusing on the major photographers, figures, institutions, publications, and galleries that shaped the photographic climate of their time, as well as the broader tastes of the era. Chapterby-chapter picture sections present famous works alongside forgotten masterpieces, interspersed with focused commentaries on selected photographs. This multilayered approach provides a rich understanding of the evolution and sheer variety of British documentary photography. A must-have for anyone interested in the history of photography, this book is a comprehensive overview of how photographers and photoartists have depicted Britain and British society over the last seventy years.
