LondonistA Grisly Gallery: The 'Infamous City' Photo Project
Here's a grisly gallery for Halloween. Reader Tom Dingley got in touch to tell us about his 'Infamous City' photo project:
My project started some years ago when I read through chapters of a book; The Black Plaque guide to London. At first I did not think to photograph them, until I was set a project with the theme of 'city'. I chose the dark, infamous history of London. It may seem macabre, but London wouldn't be London without the blood stains on its streets. From Jack the Ripper, to crime and executions, the fascination with our infamous city is global. It is also interesting to see how locations change and develop over years. A murder scene making way for the Truman brewery, for example.
