Britain in focus

Following on from Friday's post about Vivian Maier, two more street photography/photojournalism links to enjoy:

* A small sample of Bert Hardy's pictures depicting wartime and post-war Britain, an appetite-whetter for a centenary exhibition taking place at the Photographers' Gallery in London.

* A selection of pictures from Paul Graham's book Beyond Caring, shot in dole offices in 1984-5 and a revealingly bleak documentary of what life in Thatcher's Britain was like for many.

(Thanks to Alison for the second link.)
