About The British Isles 2007 – 2020
So, The British Isles, 2007 – 2020 contains a number of portraits and landscapes taken over thirteen years. Hawkesworth didn’t have an agenda other than wondering from place to place. Thus, he recorded his roaming as he travelled around town centres, residential suburbs, isolated villages and remote islands.
The book is beautifully presented as a celebration of the United Kingdom and its inhabitants. Through Hawkesworth’s lens we see commuting professionals, children, priests, shop workers, market shoppers and all the diverse faces that make up the British population.
Though the exploration of people and places, the photographer achieves an understanding of a very eventful period in British history, full of conflict, deep political shifts and the reframing of ‘Britishness’ as an identity.
