Simon Roberts. New Acquisitions
The Hyman Collection is delighted to have acquired the boxed set edition of Simon Robert's complete series of Merrie Albion. For over a decade, Simon Roberts has photographed events and places across Britain that have drawn people together in public, reflecting on the nature of our shared histories and communal experiences. Merrie Albion - Landscape Studies of a Small Island brings together iconic images and many previously unpublished photographs, recording social practices and customs linked to the British landscape, as well as some of the economic and political theatre that has helped define recent history.
