Upcoming Exhibition: Postcards from Great Britain: Haarlem

February 28, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I'm really excited about the next Shutter Hub exhibition - it's the first in a series of pop-up exhibitions for our HUGE project 'Postcards from Great Britain', and is being held at the Hotel Lion d'Or in Haarlem, The Netherlands, supported by Fujifilm Original Photo Paper

You might also recognise the image in the flyer - I'm pretty pleased that my cup of coffee photograph is being used!

Postcards from Great Britain is a new largescale project from Shutter Hub which invites photographers to share their visions of British culture through photographic images and create conversations and exchange.

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.


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

How do you see Great Britain? Culture, landscape, industry, heritage, people, places, fish and chips and cups of tea? However you see it – if the images have been taken between 01 January 2016 – 31 December 2020 we want to see them and share them.

I'll be at the launch event with Shutter Hub Creative Director Karen Harvey, so if you can make it along come and say hello! I will also be taking installation photographs of the exhibition, so I'll share some of those on the blog when I'm back!
