JCDecaux brings photography to life with Portrait of Britain event
JCDecaux, an OOH media company, and Nikon, a digital camera company, recently helped deliver digital screens to the Portrait of Britain photography exhibition. The exhibition showcased 100 portraits of UK citizens from all walks of life, according to a press release.
Photographers entered 8,000 portraits to the British Journal of Photography, which in turn selected 100 portraits to display at the event. The photos celebrated people ranging from surfers to playwrights. They also celebrated unsung heroes such as Rebecca Bunce, the co-founder of a domestic violence charity.
"This is the second year of Portrait of Britain, a unique exhibition that turns our national channel of portrait screens into a national gallery of portraits. These powerful photographs show a wonderfully diverse view of Britain, capturing people at work, at rest, in family groups and alone, in times of happiness and introspection – and will be seen by the public as they commute, shop and socialize in cities UK-wide," Ben Maher, sales and partnership director, JCDecaux, said in the release. "We are proud that Nikon has chosen to support Portrait of Britain and look forward to bringing this exciting project to our national digital channel in September."
