About

Founded in 2017 British Culture Archive is a registered 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 by curating 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.

BCA work with established and upcoming photographers, showcasing their work on our blog and online galleries as well as in exhibitions across the UK. Our ongoing project The People’s Archive documents and preserves the hundreds of images submitted to us by the public.

Our online galleries and archive 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.
