Chris Steele Perkins


An evening with award-winning Magnum photographer Chris Steele-Perkins on Tuesday 12th October 2010


In England, My England, award-winning Magnum photographer, Chris Steele-Perkins presents a sweeping, unique record of what he thinks makes England truly English. Taken over a period of some

40 years, this personal photographic commentary is an honest and singular testament to the country and the people who have made it their home.

“ These photographs are a personal selection of images that I have taken over 40 years of photographing in this country. Some are drawn from books I have made on English themes, others from stories I have worked on, from pictures of family and friends, from random events encountered. They have nothing to do with celebrity or fame, but of everydayness and how that can be special.”
