Postcards from Great Britain is a large-scale project from Shutter Hub inviting photographers to share their visions of British Culture through photographic images taken between 01 January 2016 and 31 December 2020.

Exhibitions were held in 20 locations across Europe, showcasing thousands of postcard-sized images and culminating in a final showcase with Art at the ARB at the University of Cambridge, 12 January – 25 February 2022.

100 images from the Postcards from Great Britain project have been selected to be included in a collectable set, which is available for people to purchase on our shop, either as a full set of 100 or in randomly selected sets of 10.

At a significant time in European history this project set out to document and share aspects of British culture spanning all genres of photography, including social, political, historical, traditional and observational responses.
