Thurston Hopkins - Renowned British photojournalist Gallery

Available as Framed Prints, Photos, Wall Art and Gift Items

Step into the golden age of reportage

Like many other photographers of the era, Thurston’s ambition was to work for the magazine Picture Post and this was at the heart of his career.  In 1950, he began to document the everyday life of post-war Britain, capturing the revived spirit, becoming famous for his stories, which were close to the heart of ordinary working people. He told them in shades of black and white, illustrating them with photos readers could relate to.  He received two British Press Pictures of the Year awards for his photojournalism.

This is a collection of Thurston's Iconic images capturing the lives and times of people and events. The hallmarks of Hopkins’s style as a photographer mirrored those of the news magazine: a strong story, told in “as many shades of black and white as possible”.

You can create you own perfect wall art, so why not take a peak at the possibilities with these iconic images capturing the life and times of people

Choose from 46 pictures in our Thurston Hopkins - Renowned British photojournalist collection for your Wall Art or Photo Gift. Popular choices include Framed Prints, Canvas Prints, Posters and Jigsaw Puzzles. All professionally made for quick delivery.

Chase Me; The Last Of The Gaelic Featured Thurston Hopkins - Renowned British photojournalist Print

Chase Me; The Last Of The Gaelic

23rd July 1955: Two girls running up the steps from a beach in the Scottish Western Isles. These children have spoken Gaelic for most of their lives and are taught English at school as a foreign language. It is becoming increasingly important for the islanders to learn English as they have become less isolated from the rest of Scotland through an air service which has significantly shortened the journey time to the mainland. This generation is also more likely to leave the Western Isles to seek employment, and fluency in English will be essential.
