For the second year in a row, a series of photographs called “Portrait of Britain” is returning to digital screens owned by Paris-based outdoor advertising company JCDecaux.
The British Journal of Photography is sponsoring the second Portrait of Britain event, along with JCDecaux and Nikon. The showcasing of 100 portraits will take place in busy commuter hubs and shopping centers throughout Britain during the month fo September. The exhibition is meant to be “by the people, of the people and for the people,” according to the BJP, and is meant to “celebrate our diversity, cultures and shared national identity away from any political or divisive rhetoric.”
The BJP received nearly 8,000 entries, of which 100 were chosen to be part of the exhibition.
