Bert Hardy: Photographs of bygone Britain

Famed war-time photographer Bert Hardy would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year and is regarded as one of the country's best photojournalists. Although he is well-known for his war photography, his images of post-war Britain and spontaneous everyday situations are also a visual feast. Images of children at play, war-time goodbyes and a royal wedding are due to go on display. An exhibition of his images at the Photographer's Gallery in London is open from April 4 to May 23.
