Streets of London
A candid photo portrait of London by more than 40 contemporary photographers
Fresh perspectives on well-known landmarks as well as hidden London treasures
A refreshing update of the ‘classic’ London photo book featuring photographers with strong online followings
Streets of London is part of the Streets of... series of books which gathers the personal visions of a favorite metropolis by multiple photographers
London: the capital city of the United Kingdom and the political, economic, and cultural heart of the country. Along with Paris, Tokyo, and New York, London is considered one of the alpha capitals of the world: a pulsing, vibrant mega-metropolis which attracts millions of tourists and travelers each year with its history, museums, theater, art, fine dining, rich traditions, and multicultural flair.
Streets of London is a contemporary take on the classic city photo book. To capture all the diversity that characterizes London, this volume features more than 40 contemporary photographers with equally varied perspectives and styles. From the world-renowned London landmarks and tourist attractions like Tower Bridge, the Thames, and St. Paul’s Cathedral to lesser-known London boroughs and neighborhoods, each photographer offers a personal view of the British metropolis, allowing for a fresh photo tribute to a historic city, as well as visual inspirations for Londoners, old and new.
A teNeues | MENDO publication
At the heart of MENDO is the love of pure design. Before establishing the inspirational concept store and go-to flagship bookstore for style-conscious bibliophiles in Amsterdam in 2002, founders Roy Rietstap and Joost Albronda were accomplished graphic designers with an eye for innovation and entrepreneurship. Thus, a brilliant retail concept was created in the form of the MENDO of today. The collaboration of teNeues x MENDO is a synergy on many levels—a premier international publisher of illustrated books on culture combining with trendsetting designers with a great love for beautiful, asthetically-minded books— housed in a one-of-a-kind global bookstore. If you look closely, you will see that the simple, elegant black walls are actually made of precise stacks of books—an idea that is typical Amsterdam! www.mendo.nl
