- A 15-year photography project by native Londoner Paul Anthony Scane to capture the character and soul of the city with affection and curiosity
- A unique collection of photographs of the real, authentic London - off the beaten tourist track
“Everyone that loves London will love this book.” — Joanne Good, BBC Radio London
“If you’re looking for some inspiration for unusual places to photograph in the city, or just a good manual for avoiding the obvious, this is well worth looking into.” — Amateur Photography
“This is a wonderful collection for anyone who loves London in all its unconventional glory.” — Black and White Photography
“In the book… we get a fantastic look at those alternative viewpoints that you’re unlikely to find in your Lonely Planet or Rough guide. They’ve called the books ‘Unseen’ for a reason, because you’re far less likely to have already viewed the kinds of pictures taken within it.” — Amateur Photographer
Over the course of 15 years, native Londoner Paul Anthony Scane went out by bike and on foot to explore hidden corners of his city with four analogue cameras and an eye for the unusual. This book, which is devoid of the usual tourist spots, shines a light on places and people that are not often seen: the campy drycleaner (“Go Gay”); a double decker bus appearing to manoeuvre a miniature golf course; an abandoned tank in south London. These poignant and often witty images capture the character and soul of the real London with affection and curiosity. London Unseen is a character study of a world metropolis – based on its people and streets, away from Big Ben and Trafalgar Square.
