Leading photographer Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert was just a few months out of college when he took these pictures - now, he travels the world on a variety of high profile commissions. His archive – almost a million photos – was recently acquired by the University of St Andrews.

These photos of the city and its people have been released in a zine by Café Royal Books, a publishing house which focusses on post-war documentary photography linked to Britain and Ireland. The works, which are included in prestigious collections at the Tate, the V&A, British Library and more, provide a valuable resource into cultural and social shifts in Britain and Ireland over the decades.
