A portrait series of people who call London home.

How long have you lived in London?

As K-Ci and JoJo once put it ‘all my life’.

What makes someone a Londoner?

Someone who understands the North, South divide and has a genuine hatred of our public transport system. You get those two things down, you’re a Londoner alright.

North London or South London?

See previous answer. The south is dead to me.

Favorite thing about living in London?

It’s beauty lies in the juxtaposition. Only in this city will you find quaint period houses with well kept gardens sitting a stones throw away from an urban jungle council estate kitted with it’s very own chicken shop.

Least favorite thing about living in London?

Public transport (even though I don’t use it) and parking restrictions.

Favorite spot to grab a drink?

I’m not much of a drinker so I’ll opt for Granger & Co. It’s the only place I know that knows and does a good lemon lime bitters this side of the planet.

Favorite spot to grab a bite?

Probably the Charlotte Street hotel. Brunch there is always a treat, but it’s the memories of our engagement dinner that make this place particularly special.

Taxi, Tube, Bus, Bike or Walk?

Vespa? Vespa.

Where do you go to get away from the city?

Paris. It’s another city yes, but we live right next to St Pancras International, and what can I say? Once a city boy always a city boy.

Regent’s Canal: Spring

canal_spring_01

One of my favorite semi-hidden gems in London is the Regent’s Canal that stretches from Little Venice across North London to the Limehouse Basin. On any given day you will see people taking a stroll, going for a run, biking or boating along the canal. And depending where you are, there is usually a nice spot to peel off from the path and explore London. Since we live so close, I am documenting the way it changes through the seasons. These shots are from springtime on the canal a little further west of the winter images. This part of the canal runs along Regent’s Park and the London Zoo and looks onto the backs of some beautiful houses.
