Portrait of Britain: Martin Parr exhibition shows photos from 1930s to present day

The 'Strange and Familiar' exhibition, curated by the iconic British photographer Martin Parr, brings together hundreds of images of the UK taken by international photographers, from the 1930s to the present day.

From social documentary and portraiture, to street and architectural photography, the exhibition at London's Barbican Art Gallery paints a rich and varied picture of British social, political and cultural identity.
