This remarkable book of photography captures life in the capital during 1930–1980.
The Another London book features photographs from the years between 1930 and 1980 by some of the best-known photographers from around the world, who came to London and made its streets, buildings and communities their subject. For some, the capital was to become home; for others it remained a foreign city.
This eye-catching book, accompanying a major exhibition at Tate Britain in London’s Olympic year, demonstrates the breadth and variety of the responses London provoked from visiting photographers during the period, from portraits to reportage, from social realism to whimsy and humour, the changes in their technique and attitude demonstrating developments in photography itself.
Right now I have a copy on my desk here in the office at Tate and I just haven’t been able to stop looking at the photographs as I keep seeing new things in the background. I enjoy photography and this is a book where every black and white photograph stands out to me as a great celebration of London and life in the big smoke.
Packed with 4 colour and 100 black-and-white illustrations, this book is £16.99
