Horace Ove: Walking Proud

Walking Proud (c. 1971) by the Trinidadian photographer and film-maker Horace Ove is one of five hundred photographs in How We Are: Photographing Britain, a new exhibition opening on 22 May at the Tate Britain (which also includes work by Jamaica-born Vanley Burke). "It takes a unique look at the journey of British photography," says the Tate website, "from the pioneers of the early medium to today’s photographers who use new technology to make and display their imagery." (The UK Guardian has posted a slideshow of ten images from the show here; read Blake Morrison's review of the show here.)

The Tate has also invited members of the public to contribute images via a "How We Are Now" Flickr group--part of what looks like a growing trend in using Flickr to host online galleries and exhibitions.
