'When We Were Young: Memories of Growing Up in Britain', 192pp, cloth spine, 156mm x 206mm. Photography compiled by Lee Shulman, creator of The Anonymous Project. With an introduction by Lucy Davies.
A wonderful British photobook of our past. Unknown yet strangely familiar, these anonymous family photographs provide a unique window into past lives. Each image, shot on colour slide film in Britain between the mid 40s and 70s, transports us to a world full of possible stories and forgotten memories.
‘This is a truly filmic insight into Britain’s past. The images remind me of my roots – a more innocent world.’ – Ridley Scott
The Anonymous Project is dedicated to collecting and preserving colour slides from the last 70 years from all around the world. Started in 2017 by filmmaker Lee Shulman, the project seeks to preserve Kodachrome memories and create new ways of storytelling that question our place in the world today.
Book design by Friederike Huber.
