Chris Steele-Perkins‘s images from The New Londoners, the project in which he photographed families living in London from all over the world, are on display at the British Library. The photographer describes his exploration of the city’s unique cultural make-up in the form of family portraits as “a record of a new London, a new Britain and a celebration of the fabulous cultural richness of London.”
