These Portraits Celebrate Britain’s Rich Diversity

Digital screens across the UK are displaying portraits of everyday Brits, and some familiar faces.

A new nationwide photographic exhibition features 100 Britons on digital screens in shopping malls, train stations and high streets across the UK. The art aims to highlight the “enduring power of the portrait”, and celebrate the rich diversity and heritage of the country in 2016.
