Martin Parr curates an exhibition capturing life in modern Britain but – in an intriguing twist – as seen from a foreign perspective.

Photographers from across Europe, Asia and the Americas feature: Henri Cartier-Bresson documents the euphoria of King George VI’s coronation, Sergio Larrain captures London’s dizzying transformation during the post war years, Hans van der Meer celebrates the rallying spirit of lower league football, and Tina Barney discovers life in Britain’s upper classes.

The display highlights how these photographers were inspired by their experiences in Britain and the effect this had on their approach to image making.
