JOIN US: POSTCARDS FROM GREAT BRITAIN Exhibition Launch, Haarlem – 05 March 2020

Postcards from Great Britain launches in Haarlem on 05 March 2020 at the city’s famous Hotel Lion d’Or.

We’d love you to join us and our special guests for a Gezellig evening of great photography and excellent company. Simone Sagi (Netherlands Board of Tourism & Conventions) will give an introductory speech on the importance of imagery as a cultural exchange. Our friends and print sponsors Fujifilm will also join us for the evening. Drinks and snacks (both Dutch and British) will be served, and there’ll be lots of time for looking, talking and networking.


Postcards from Great Britain is a largescale project from Shutter Hub, inviting photographers to share their visions of British culture through photographic images and create conversations and exchange. Pop-up exhibitions will be held in locations across Europe, with related events, showcasing thousands of postcard-sized images. Every image submitted to Postcards from Great Britain will be collated into a digital and print catalogue, to be housed in libraries and archives around the world, and 100 images will be selected for a collectable postcard set. (See the up-to-date Project Overview here).


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