Adama and Clare’s work was selected from almost 4,000 entries to be part of the exhibition, which celebrates the country’s unique heritage and diversity.
The featured work will be showing across digital screens in railway stations, shopping centres, high streets and bus stops around the UK.
Clare tells us more about her work: “Eugenie suffered from a stroke in her mid forties, which left her severely visually impaired and stole large parts of her memory.
I was introduced to Eugenie through the Haringey Phoenix Group, a charity for blind and partially sighted people, and I photographed her once a week for three and a half years, documenting her transition into a different way of the same life.
Being selected for Portrait of Britain has been a wonderful experience. I visited my hometown of Birmingham and saw Eugenie on a billboard at New Street Station, and have caught glimpses of her in various locations around London.
I began this project shortly after graduating from AUB in order to continue to develop my practice, and it’s great that it’s being seen by such a broad audience across the UK.“
