You know what London looks like - or so you think. You’ve seen the bright lights of Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace and Big Ben. But the tourist vision isn’t the whole story.
This illuminating new book brings together more than 20 contemporary photography projects that uncover the strange, beautiful and surprising sides of the capital.
Meander through the magical half-light of Hampstead Heath at dusk and trace the battle scars left on the city’s buildings by the Blitz. Meet the boat-dwelling modern hippies who’ve made the canals their home and travel deep underground to see the Crossrail tunnels mid-construction.
Ranging from evocative black and white images to vivid colour portraits, each project offers a unique visual perspective of a vast and ever-changing city, while accompanying features by journalist and writer Rachel Segal Hamilton reveal the hidden contexts and stories.
