I have a great fondness for the city of London.
When I think of it, I think of it as black and white with a strong dose of grit. My vision of the city is based partly on the years I lived there, as well as on my love of Robert Frank’s photographs of London, Humphrey Spender’s work, and the Beatles in Hard Day’s Night.
Joshua K. Jackson’s book Sleepless in Soho published by Setanta Books blows up that preconception by presenting a group of color photos of Soho after dark. The photos are forcefully composed with strong splashes of primary colors.
From the books press release;
Sleepless in Soho is Joshua K. Jackson’s debut monograph.
For three years, Jackson walked through the lamp-lit and neon-filled streets of Soho, turning to photography initially as a way to escape the frustrations of insomnia.
Jackson’s work from this period, reveals the complex and intense atmosphere in London’s best known entertainment district — observing the juxtaposition between the Soho of today and the faded character of its past.
