- This collection of historic and contemporary images features work from over 60 photographers who reveal the city after hours: unnerving, beautiful, eerie, energized - sometimes all at once On 11th May 2018, the Museum of London launched a major new exhibition showcasing both contemporary and historic imagery that explores the capital after hours. Well-known photographers including Bill Brandt, Bob Collins, Brian Griffin, Vicky Grout, Tim Peake, Rut Blees Luxemburg, William Eckersley, Dougie Wallace and Tom Hunter will sit alongside lesser-known artists who explore the dreamy, threatening and shadowy world of the city after the sun goes down. Split into three sections to reflect these different sides of the capital, the book contains essays, poetry by award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams, and over 100 images from the exhibition that span the genres of architectural, documentary and portrait photography.
Anna Sparham is Curator of Photographs at the Museum of London. With over 15 years experience working with image collections as a whole, from historic to contemporary photography, Sparham has curated a number of major exhibitions including London Nights, Soldiers & Suffragettes: the photography of Christina Broom and London Street Photography all at the Museum of London.
