About the Book
These photographs were made mostly around the year 2000 and are an attempt to capture the character and humor of the English. It's a journey through my small country, seeking out the light hearted moments that reveal the many interests of my compatriots. In smiling at their eccentricities you may grow to love them a little.
I was fortunate to start out as a documentary photographer at the birth of the British colour magazines in the 1960s, and worked regularly for the Sunday Times and Telegraph magazines. After shooting for a year in America on a grant, I began shooting for the Smitsonian Magazine, National Geographic Traveler and American , German and French Geo. I have always pursued personal projects, and the tempo and depth of these has only increased in recent years with the added creative impetuous that digital photography has opened up. It's fair to say that "LONDONERS !" would have been prohibitively expensive to shoot on film, and could only have reached the present book dummy stage thanks to Blurb.
