On 12 January 2022 POSTCARDS FROM EUROPE will open at Cambridge University, showcasing several hundred photographic images from across the continent. Supporting this exhibition will be a selection of around 200 images from POSTCARDS FROM GREAT BRITAIN

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

POSTCARDS FROM GREAT BRITAIN is 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, and this exhibition at Cambridge University will be the 20th and final exhibition in the series.

Every image submitted to POSTCARDS FROM GREAT BRITAIN has been collated as an archival catalogue, to be housed in libraries and archives around the world, including The British Library, Cambridge University Library, and Victoria and Albert Museum, amongst others.  A full list of the POSTCARDS FROM GREAT BRITAIN exhibitions can be found here, including a list of the archive locations.
