This week was a little trip down memory lane for me – spanning a few years spent photographing London. First as a visitor, then a resident… no longer a tourist.
As a stranger to the city, I found it easy to spot a photo. Paradoxically, that’s something that gets harder, the better you know a place. I was curious to see if my sense of place had been changed over the years by familiarity.
I do hope that it hasn’t altered fundamentally, and that I have managed to maintain the perspective that I held when I first arrived here. The role of the casual observer, camera-in-hand, is one I hope to play for many years to come.
