'People of London' by Peter Zelewski. 160pp, hardcover with cloth-covered back case and spine, gold foiled, 160 x 228mm
This is book 1 from a series dedicated to the best urban photography from around the world. The books are similar to the Hoxton Mini Press grey-spined series but 20% bigger with cloth wrapped around the back. Even better!
Motivated by a love of London and its people, Peter Zelewski spent over five years taking photographs of strangers throughout the city. This collection of 100 powerful portraits, accompanied by intimate quotes, is a celebration of the diversity and spirit of one of the world's most dynamic cities.
Born in Detroit and having made London his home for the past 30 years, Peter Zelewski has long considered himself a Londoner. With his mother having grown up just off the Caledonian Road and family full of Arsenal supporters, London has always been in his blood. Peter’s unique style of street portraiture has earned him a place of numerous publications and exhibitions including at the National Portrait Gallery, London. Peter divides his time between commercial photography and self-initiated portraiture projects.
