EXHIBITION: POSTCARDS FROM EUROPE at Cambridge University, 12 Jan – 25 Feb 2022

Graphic with an image of a building and trees in the background, with the words 'POSTCARDS FROM EUROPE' overlaid in white in the centre.

On 12 January 2022 POSTCARDS FROM EUROPE will open at Cambridge University, showcasing several hundred photographic images from across the continent.

This exhibition has been created from a call for response and collaboration, triggered by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and reflecting on POSTCARDS FROM GREAT BRITAIN, a large-scale project from Shutter Hub, which invited photographers to share their visions of British culture through photographic images and create conversations and exchange. Pop-up exhibitions were held in 19 separate locations across Europe, showcasing thousands of postcard-sized images. (A full list of the exhibitions can be found here).

In a significant time in history this exhibition sets out to share aspects of European culture, spanning all genres of photography, and collating images which include social, political, historical, traditional and observational responses.
