'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.
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
