London as you’ve never seen it: Photography series celebrates unusual sights away from the tourist hotspots – from an abandoned Soviet tank to graffiti of the Kray twins
- Photography project London Unseen is the result of 15 years’ work by photography Paul Anthony Scane
- Stunning images captured on analogue cameras reveal the lesser-documented parts of the capital
- Highlights include graffiti of the Kray twins in Hackney and a moody photo of a north London tower block
There is no sign of Big Ben, or the tourists crowding into Picadilly Circus in the pre-lockdown era.
Instead these images capture a camp local dry cleaners, a north London tower block, and graffiti of the Kray twins carrying Tesco bags.
The provocative photographs are part of a project titled London Unseen, which, as the name suggests, shines a light on the lesser-documented side of the capital.
The series is the product of 15 years’ work by ‘London born and bred’ photographer and screen printer Paul Anthony Scane, who bucked the digital trend and set about capturing the city on four analogue cameras.
The result is interesting and thought-provoking images that showcase the ‘real’ London, away from the hustle and bustle, and the people who call it home.
Scane has also collated photos taken by other photographers that document the city from the 1890s-1980s – and reveal how much it has changed.
Here, FEMAIL shares a selection of Scane’s images.
