British Journal of Photography brings you the second instalment of the UK’s biggest photography exhibition. Envisioned as an exhibition for the people, by the people, Portrait of Britain, is a testament to both the diversity of our country and contemporary photographic talent.

In partnership with JCDecaux and Nikon, Portrait of Britain will showcase the work of its selected photographers on a network of digital screens throughout the country, from rail stations and airports, to shopping malls and high streets.  

Chosen from almost 8000 entries, this year’s selection features portraits of some of the country’s most notable personalities, including artists Anthony Gormley and Tracey Emin. A number of unsung heroes are also on show, such as the pioneering neurosurgeon Dr. Henry Marsh. Above all, the winning entries centre on individuals: ordinary citizens engaged in their everyday lives, celebrated in public view across the country.

The exhibition will run across JCDecaux’s digital network of screens from 1st – 30th September 2017.
