London Nights

ABOUT THE BOOK:

In the glow of the night, the vibrancy of London meets a quiet stillness.

This collection of historic and contemporary images features work from over 60 photographers who reveal the city after hours: unnerving, beautiful, eerie, energised – sometimes all at once. Step into the night and discover a darker, richer side to the capital. 

The book contains essays by Museum of London’s Curator of Photographs, Anna Sparham, poetry by award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams, and over 100 images from the exhibition that span the genres of architectural, documentary and portrait photography. Includes work by Bill Brandt, Bob Collins, Brian Griffin, Tish Murtha, Tim Peake, Rut Blees Luxemburg, William Eckersley, Dougie Wallace, Nick Turpin and many more. 

'London Nights' is published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name, running 11 May - 11 November 2018 at Museum of London, 150 London Wall, EC2Y 5HN. Click here for more details.
