“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine. Fabulous!”Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
When the UK decided to leave the EU, London-born photographer Orlando Gili set out to capture who the English really are. He fixed his lens on the nation’s rather strange love of leisure. This book, now published in a different time, is adocument of the freedoms that we now so sorely miss. From horse racing to wartime reenactments, carnivals to clubs, from ancient and quintessential rituals (medieval village bottle-kicking competitions) to the more modern (Santa pub crawls) the image reveal that which unites a divided nation: a relentless desire for organised fun. Trivial Pursuits is a celebration of the community, culture and tradition of the English... recorded just before the world changed.
