Filled with people of all races, religions, and nationalities, and packed with energy, it is a dynamic melting pot and a colorful testimony to the human spirit. Over five years, photographer Richard Slater traversed the streets of the city, photographing, meeting, and talking with ordinary Londoners from all walks of life. The result is this rich and vibrant celebration of London in its many different guises. Accompanied by insightful commentary that tells the stories behind the images, the book features London’s tribes—whether identified by class, wealth, or taste- the extraordinary number of faith groups- the population’s diversity of race and ethnicity- the creative and political life of London’s streets- the numerous festivals and celebrations that take place throughout the year- and, finally, the many surprises that lie hidden within the metropolis. Utterly unique, People in London is a celebration of diversity, and a love letter to this great city.
