Product description


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
