London Street Photogrpahy is one of the major exhibitions going on at the Museum of London showcasing an exceptional collection of photographs of everyday life on London’s streets dating back to 1860. Capturing a diverse and vibrant city, these street photographs exemplify London’s character through its ever-changing street-culture. This collection of local historical photographs reflect momentary inspirations and chance encounters amidst the bustling city streets caught on camera by the likes of Valentine Blanchard, John Thomson, Henry Grant and Roger Mayne.
The exhibition displays an organic timeline of 150 years of how London and its inhabitants have developed and progressed over the years through these, sometimes humorous and symbolic occasions as seen in the days gone by. From the nostalgic sepia memories to digital visions of the city and its residents today that have been so gracefully portrayed in these thoughtful photographs.
