About

Founded in 2017 British Culture Archive is a non-profit resource set up to document, highlight and preserve the changes in British society and culture through social and documentary photography.

Our mission is to educate, inspire and engage people with photography through our online galleries, events and exhibitions – highlighting the changes of everyday life and society prior to the rapid rise of technology, smart phones and social media. 

British Culture Archive are proud to work with established and upcoming photographers, showcasing their work through our online galleries as well as physical exhibitions across the UK and overseas. Our ongoing project The People’s Archive documents and preserves the hundreds of images submitted to us by the public.

Our online galleries include images ranging from from the 1960’s Mod Scene, Northern Soul and Punk. Through to Thatcher’s Britain, Social Housing, Industrial decline, Regeneration, Acid House, Protests and more.
