About The British Isles

The British Isles is an account of thirteen years of life across the United Kingdom, as seen through the lens of Jamie Hawkesworth. In this sprawling sequence of portraits and landscapes, Hawkesworth surveys the characters and terrains that make up the everyday fabric of his home country: schoolchildren and shopworkers, markets and estates, priests and professionals, cities and construction sites. These photographs chart an alternative history of a period of British history punctuated by austerity, referenda, celebration, and conflict. As much as a historical document, this book is an exercise in generous curiosity, presenting a radically democratising portrait of the United Kingdom.
