The New Londoners at The British Library
Photographs from Chris Steele-Perkin's latest project on the multicultural make-up of London are exhibited at the British national library
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.”
Read about the origins of the comprehensive projet in a Magnum article about The New Londoners. In Chris Steele-Perkins: Behind the Image, the photographer discusses the personal significance of the project in the age of Brexit and its relation to the tradition of recording.
