London: a street photographer’s idea of paradise
A sneak preview on our next book in the Streets Of... series
When we were having the first conversations with our partner teNeues in 2017, one of the first ideas that came to fruition was Streets of New York. With the Streets of… series, we wanted to show the world’s most dynamic cities through the eyes of contemporary photographers, and we couldn’t have wished for a better start than SONY.
Our second Streets of… project, however, would be a little more challenging. New York is a beautiful photogenic city, and a thankful subject for a lot of photography books. With the second one, we went a bit off the beaten track. Although it might be a bit weird to say that about a city that is as famous and popular as London.
‘You’ll see that paradise isn’t that far away.’
‘You’ll see that paradise isn’t that far away.’
Streets of London shows that London is an honorable contender to the Big Apple as one of the most appealing cities to photograph. It does so, in its very own way, with a collection of photographers that know the city like the back of their hands.
The photographers in Streets of London all have different backgrounds, styles and techniques but share one common denominator: the love for London. It is evident in their work; whether they are from London or frequent visitors like us, all photographers in this book have a truly unique eye on this beautiful city. Streets of London allows you to share that eye, through amazing photographs made by the contemporary masters of London imagery.
London is extremely diverse. A third of London’s population is born outside of the UK and it’s very obvious when you walk through the streets of London. Besides the demographic diversity, London offers an extensive variety of architecture and culture. Together with its typical whimsical weather London can be considered as a street photographer’s idea of paradise. And this book is the tangible proof of that.
A paradise that may not be evident for everyone immediately. As its gray skies and constant construction seem to be typical London. But just wait until you get the chance to hold this book in May of this year. You’ll see that paradise isn’t that far away. You’ll see why Londoners feel like they are living in paradise every day. Londoners from all around the world that are lucky enough to call this beautiful city their home. And by turning the pages of this book, you are lucky enough to see what they see.
