The magazine of the photo-essay
May 2018 issue
London Nights
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
On 11 May 2018, the Museum of London will launch a major new exhibition showcasing both contemporary and historic imagery that explores the capital after hours. Well-known photographers including Bill Brandt, Bob Collins, Brian Griffin, Tish Murtha, Tim Peake, Rut Blees Luxemburg, William Eckersley, Dougie Wallace and Nick Turpin will sit alongside lesser-known artists who explore the dreamy, threatening and shadowy world of the city after the sun goes down. Split into three sections to reflect the different sides of London’s nocturnal character, the book contains essays by Museum of London’s Curator of Photographs, Anna Sparham, poetry by award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams, and over 100 images from the exhibition that span the genres of architectural, documentary and portrait photography. Step into the night and discover a darker, richer side to the capital.   Available from Hoxton Mini Press
