Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"The postcards illustrated offer both a fascinating glimpse into history at a time of great social change and a visual record of British society. Essays by Tom Phillips, Elizabeth Edwards and James Fenton establish the place of the postcard portrait within the genre of photographic portraiture, explore the aesthetic and emotive appeal of postcard portraits, and offer the anthropologist's response to their language of signs and symbols. Intriguing, humorous and at times haunting, We Are The People presents an original approach to portraiture, indispensable to all those interested in photography, the social historian and general reader alike."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
