Picture Post

I found this book in a charity shop last weekend and absolutely love the photographs! Picture Post was a photographic journalism magazine started in October 1938 that ran up until June 1957. The series has been recommended to me before but I was really lucky to find an annual with such a vast and varied amount of images. They haven’t scanned brilliantly but I think the character of the photographs is amazing! I really want to practice my portraiture skills by working from these and I also think they’ll make great reference material for future briefs.
