ALL IS ONE… LIFE IS GOOD IN LONDON (AI1+LIGIL) is a selection of pictures by me that go straight to the heart of this ancient city. The series is in production and I hope one day to publish them in a book.
I aim to publish at least once a week in this series known for short as ‘Ai1+LIGIL’
William Klein published ‘Life is Good and Good for you in New York City’ in 1956. It was a bomb for photo book publishing. For the first time on paper the frenetic activity of the worlds greatest city was laid out. Just leafing through it meant engaging with New York’s discordant harmony. Note – I think that the London of the 50’s, 60’s, 70′ and even 80’s would not have inspired the kind of frenetic treatment that inspires this collection of images. Now that London is securely the most cosmopolitan city in the world and its population is booming I feel the time is right to explore London’s own particular and peculiar energy through a photographic project like this.
