Richard Slater's forthcoming book People in London: One Photographer. Five Years. The Life of a City is a stunning photographical portrait of the people of a city, captured over five year and showing ordinary Londoners from all walks of life. The book looks at the length and breadth of London's denizens, from the city's various tribes – whether identified by class, wealth, or taste; the extraordinary number of faith groups; the population’s diversity of race and ethnicity; the creative and political life of London’s streets; the numerous festivals and celebrations that take place throughout the year; and, finally, the many surprises that lie hidden within the metropolis.
Accompanying the book is a major exhibition of the photographs at the Royal Geographical Society. Running from the 8th of September to the 17th of October, the exhibition has been mentioned in the Evening Standard and Time Out. The exhibition is free, so go along for a taster before getting your copy of People in London.
