Londoners from diverse cultural backgrounds are being invited to add their family photos to a national archive chronicling Britain’s cultural history.

From birthdays to street parties, domestic scenes to studio portraits, your photos could help capture the social history of the city.

Autograph ABP will add the photos to a continuously growing online image bank. The organisation uses photography to address issues of cultural identity and human rights.

Autograph ABP will be collecting family snapshots at Rivington Place on 23 October, 12-5pm.

    What a great idea, we’ve got some classics in my family album – including some impressive 70s afros!

    It’s kind of along the lines of Awkward Family Photos ( but with a slightly more worthy purpose!

    This is brilliant – will be digging through my old pics to see if there are any gems i can submit – i can already think of a few!
