The Martin Parr Foundation is holding a seminar day to launch a new major publication from Gerry Badger,  Another Country, British Documentary Photography since 1945  (thames & Hudson) which showcases the social and cultural history of Britain since the Second World War. Organised chronologically, each chapter spans a period of social and cultural history, focusing on the major photographers, figures, institutions, publications and galleries that shaped the photographic climate of that time.

  • Introduction, with Martin Parr and Gerry Badger
  • John Bulmer
  • Hannah Starkey
