For the first time, Tate Britain is inviting members of the public to contribute to the content of
an exhibition. How We Are: Photographing Britain takes a unique look at the journey of
British photography, from the pioneers of the early medium to today’s photographers who use new
technology to make and display their imagery.
To submit a photograph to the exhibition, simply join the How We Are Now Flickr group and contribute
your photograph anytime from 21 May until 25 July 2007. Your photograph must be taken in the United
Kingdom and illustrate one of the four themes of the exhibition: portrait, landscape, still life
or documentary. The group's photographs will be displayed on screens as part of the exhibition at
Tate Britain. The photographs will also be posted and shared on Tate's website and on the website
of the exhibition's media partner, The Observer.
In the final weeks of the exhibition, 40 photographs – 10 from each of the four themes – will be
chosen by Tate to form the final display in the gallery from 6 August – 2 September 2007. A panel
of curators, artists, photographers and others will select the final 40 photographs. The final 40
images will also be archived on Tate Online as part of the exhibition's website.
