Archive Projects / The Lost Album


Published by Booth-Clibborn Editions The Lost Album is  stunning anthology of black and white photography and vintage memorabilia which provide a personal snapshot of everyday life in Britain during an almost forgotten era. Basil Hyman captures the nostalgia and raw spirit of 1950’s Britain through a range of intimate portraits, scenes of daily family life and popular entertainment and public events such as The Festival of Britain and The Queen’s Coronation. Basil Hyman’s photography juxtaposed with playbills, tickets, restaurant bills and menu cards, pays tribute to his 1950s.
