London Street Photography- Museum of London

These street photos, from the 19th Century to the present day, offer a glimpse into city life; “a fortunate encounter, a fleeting expression, a momentary juxtaposition, capturing an ever-changing city.” The museum says: “This major new exhibition at the Museum of London showcases an extraordinary collection of London street photography with over 200 candid images of everyday life in the street. From sepia-toned scenes of horse-drawn cabs taken on bulky tripod-mounted cameras to 21st century Londoners digitally ‘caught on film’, explore how street photography has evolved from 1860 to the present day. Examine the relationship between photographers, London’s streets and the people who live on them, and reflect on the place of photography on London’s streets today as anti-terrorism and privacy laws grow ever tighter.” These little vignettes allow us to look back over time to different eras in London, and uncover the city’s various characters going about their daily lives.
