Click to preview Shoreditch Bridge Portraits 1 photo book

Like Diogenes, I was looking for human beings, and I found them under a bridge in Shoreditch.
This is a series of portraits made under a concrete railway bridge in Shoreditch where nobody would normally stop. the series shows how a cross-section of Londoners looked in the setting of a quintessential twenty-first century space of transit between the corporate, artistic, and post-working class communities of East London. The series emerges from my interest in London as a contentious public space of translation, displacement, and experimental travel.


About the Author

John Perivolaris
perivolaris Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England

Born in Montreal of Greek parents, brought up in London, degrees in Spanish and Latin American Studies, digitized and dislocated, I am in a constant state of existential, visual, and linguistic translation. Wandering through cities where I don't even know my cellphone number, art offers a way of gathering myself together.
