Photographer Paul Scane was born in London and has devoted himself completely to his hometown for the last few decades
A unique photo collection of real, authentic London - off the beaten tourist track
Paul Scane was born in London and has dedicated his entire photography career to his hometown in recent years. Armed only with his camera, he walked the streets of the British capital for days and weeks, always looking for an exciting motif, an unusual face, an expressive gesture, but also for bizarre events or unusual colors and shapes in architecture . For Paul, London is a constant pool of inspiration that brings new and unusual things to light every day – the place that he knows best and at the same time rediscovers every day.
Mostly in black and white, a unique collection has emerged over the years that captures the character and soul of real London in more detail than perhaps any illustrated London book before. Where many previously published volumes on the subject of London are above all a journey in pictures past the tourist hotspots, "London Unseen" is the character study of a world metropolis - based on its people and streets, away from Big Ben and Trafalgar Square.
In short but concise texts, "London Unseen" provides an introduction to this unknown side of the British capital using the pictures and their stories.
