This March we are very delighted to be hosting the book launch & exhibition for street life photographer Edo Zollo.

About

Edo's "voyeuristic, dimly-lit shots transform innocuous London scenes into something altogether more sinister: a dinner between two friends, for example, suddenly seems like a clandestine meeting of international intrigue." - Time Out

London is one of the most photographed cities in the world, from the architecture to public events, and yet we rarely see pictures of the darkness of London. The city at night is completely different from the classic “tourist postcard”. When the sun goes down, there’s always a sense of mystery that comes along with it. Shadows of objects and people fuel our imagination, creating worlds beneath the surface that suddenly rise to life. It’s these stories of the uncertain, clandestine and enigmatic that Edo Zollo’s images tell.

Edo wandered through the streets of London at night keeping an eye out for spots with mysterious light, or a good background, clipping with his camera photographic snippets of life from scarcely lit urban surroundings. Dark, haunting, and thought-provoking, this exhibition, and accompanying book, exposes another side to this world-famous capital city.
