For this work, Nick Danziger selects the pick of his black-and-white images of Britain's underclass and upperclass to create a vivid portrait of Britain at the start of the second millennium. From the palaces of Westminster to Durham's high-security, H-block prison wing for women murderers, from remote Scottish crofting communities to the violence-scarred, inner-city neighbourhoods of Scottswood and Benwell in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, from the richest man in England (the Duke of Westminster) and the C-in-C of the British Army to lives dominated by the abuse of drugs, violence and unemployment, Nick Danziger traverses the land in images of dramatic power.

Over the last decade, Nick Danziger, one of Britain’s leading photojournalists, has had a unique opportunity to photograph widely diverse sectors of British life. The photos were taken as part of a documentary film series on the “two nations” that exist within Britain: one that dreams of holding on to its privileged past and its traditions, the other that has few dreams apart from survival. From the palaces of Westminster to Durham Prison’s H–Block wing for women murderers, remote Scottish crofting communities to violence–scarred, inner–city neighborhoods, and from the richest man in England to lives dominated by drugs, brutality, and unemployment, Danziger traverses the land in images of raw dramatic power. Nick Danziger is an award–winning documentary filmmaker and a highly published photographer; among his books is the best–selling Danziger’s Travels.About the Author:
