'England has never exactly been glamorous. Many of the English still insist on embarrassing themselves, wearing laughable clothing, eating terrible food and behaving inappropriately. Alcohol features prominently because, whether living it up at Henley Royal Regatta or at a hen's party in Blackpool, the nation's favourite legal high is never far away. Many attending England's festivals, country house events, sporting fixtures, jollies and jamborees look disappointed and confused, as if they cannot quite understand why they are not having the marvelous time they were expecting or think they deserve.'
England Uncensored, a collection of photos by Peter Dench, pulls no punches in its exploration of the highs and lows of British life. The book is now available for direct purchase.
