Unseen UK

Unseen UK was a project for all postal workers in the Royal Mail. Each were given a disposable camera and simply asked to capture their journey. Around 20,000 photos were taken then the photographer Stephen Gill narrowed them down to the the selection in this book.
It holds a variety of photos each representing something different some obviously related to post, some not. I think the beauty of this book is the fact that the people taking the photos aren't photographers and they have engaged people to look at the postal service in a new way.
