Portrait of Britain Vol. 2 is a new volume featuring 200 photographs that capture the face of a changing nation. The book, made in collaboration between Hoxton Mini Press and British Journal of Photography, presents some of the most compelling portraits taken in Britain during this time of national soul-searching. The photos are accompanied by wonderful quotes from the photographers.

'The portraits in this book show a country unscripted, revealed page by page in all its joy. its sorrows and anxieties, its accidental beauty... There's no mystery to being British. You just have to be yourself.' - Ekow Eshun, from the introduction

Portrait of Britain is an annual photography exhibition showcasing the best portraits taken by people throughout the country. The winning photographs, selected from BJP's open-call competition, are displayed on digital billboard screens nationwide – in train stations, airports, shopping centres and on high streets – and are seen by over 10 million people.

Now in its third year, the exhibition will re-launch on 1 September 2018 for one month but for the first time with this book. Portrait of Britain is a small, chunky hardback featuring 200 shortlisted portraits alongside information about each image and selected quotes from the photographers. Together these photographs celebrate the richness and diversity of a vibrant nation at a time of pivotal change.
