Product Description

Review

Documentary approach that shows the English at work and at play over the last four decades. By turns gritty and evocative, it is a book one imagines that Orwell would have liked very much. --The Guardian, Photobooks of the Year 2009

The book contains some strong and touching images, and is very good on some key points in the difficult evolution of a multicultural nation. --British Journal of Photography

It captures the little triumphs and larger miseries of the lives of ordinary people - the poor and the upwardly mobile, the idle and the abandoned. --New Statesman

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mark J. Stafford on 19 Nov. 2009
Format: Hardcover
This photography book by Chris Steele-Perkins collects some of the famous pictures from some of his previous books like 'The Teds' and 'Northern Exposures' as well as the rest of book being made up of a brilliant variety of new pictures, some personal, some not from the past 40 years.

I found the pictures to be of excellent quality and that they capture the moment of the times in perfect detail. There is an essence of English lifestyle and culture throughout this book that brings back fond memories from the past.

In all, it is a great book, which would make an excellent Christmas present.

Format: Hardcover
I met Chris Steele-Perkins at a workshop in barcelona and got in touch with his style to work. I like his brilliant sense of humor, the compositions in his pictures are great, some photos - and stories behind - are really touching.
A Great book of a great Photographer.

Some really funny, touching and unnerving images. I saw his exhibition in King's Place in London and decided to buy his book.

Don't buy this if you're expecting a flag waving celebration of all things English. This book focuses on the quirks and traits that are usually obvious to those viewing us from the perspective of other cultures whilst remaining invisible to ourselves. A nice reminder of who we are.

In (my opinion) the best image was on the front cover.
