• Street photographs that capture the strange but influential heart of London's historic financial district
London's Square Mile - also known as the City of London - is both well-known and little known. Millions pass through or work within its winding alleyways and cobbled passages, but few are truly aware of its vast power and significance. The City is a self-contained kingdom at the core of global finance, one so important it boasts its own Lord Mayor and police force. Its history is rich and complex with repercussions that are all too real today. Together with text written by world-renowned historian David Kynaston, these ethereal photographs of people captured amongst imposing architecture begin to decode one of the most influential and cryptic parts of London.
