Strange and Familiar: Britain as Revealed by International Photographers

A very addictive curation of photographs by Martin Parr capturing the culture of British people from an ‘outsiders’ perspective – I believe the ‘Strange and Familiar’ photography exhibition currently at the Barbican is superbly capturing of the one-off event and also the quotidian of everyday life.

I was taken on a journey by the sheer number individual stories portraying British life between the 1930s up to the early 2000s, drifting from the nightlife of Soho, the struggles in Northern Ireland, the raw portrayal of Glasgow (such as Raymond Depardon's photo above), to the mining towns of Wales. A brilliant exhibition indeed.
