All Change is proud to congratulate our Associate Artist Leticia Valverdes as a British Journal of Photography – Portrait of Britain 2018 winner. Leticia’s beautiful image of Joseph O’Sullivan aged 92 – created as part of our Going Places project with Mildmay Extra Care Centre -is included in a book of 100 images celebrating diversity.
Envisaged as an exhibition ‘by the people, of the people, for the people’, Portrait of Britain was initiated as an open call for photographs that celebrate the country’s unique heritage and diversity. Selected from nearly 4000 entries, the winning 100 portraits capture young and old, reflecting not just the multiformity of British people, but also the myriad of styles and approaches to contemporary photographic portraiture.A UK-wide exhibition will put the nation’s citizens centre stage. It will take over screens in shopping malls, train stations and high streets throughout the month of September 2018 underlining the enduring power of the portrait.Organised by the British Journal of Photography and in conjunction with JCDecaux the exhibition will be displayed across digital screens in rail, retail, and roadside locations nationwide – including Kings Cross, Liverpool Street, London Bridge, Waterloo, Victoria and Euston stations in London. 100 portraits have been selected, confronting the public with a reflection of themselves as they go about their daily business.
