"...Not only is this exhibition a multifaceted history of Britain charted by very different sensibilities through the decades, it also charts the developing medium of photography itself, as various strands of social documentary give way to fine-art photography and colour floods in. In the show’s later rooms, places and people are increasingly given separate portrayals, whether Rineke Dijkstra’s 1990s teenage girls all togged up for a night out in Liverpool’s Buzz Club, or Jim Dow’s rammed shop window displays and his empty Edward Hopper-esque Peckham eel and pie shop."
