As the UK marks the Queen’s platinum jubilee, a portrait series celebrates the many faces of modern Britain

From the founders of Europe’s first LGBTQ+ football team, to the doctors working on the frontline of the NHS during the pandemic, a portrait series captures the faces of a changing Britain.

At a time when identity is being weaponised by the culture wars, Portrait of Britain celebrates the diversity, tolerance and eccentricity of the nation in the year of the platinum jubilee.  

Below, the photographers introduce their images (click on the snaps to reveal the captions).

All are taken from Portrait of Britain Vol 4, which is published by Hoxton Mini Press in collaboration with 1854 Media and the British Journal of Photography.
