Getting to know London through taking photographs of every one of its 58,000 streets has been the mammoth undertaking of the Bleeding London project, and now there's chance to see a tranche of the work it has produced.

Explore the best-known city landmarks, the photogenic nooks and alleys, or even the ugly parts often overlooked through 1,200 images captured by contributors to the Royal Photographic Society project.

It was inspired by Geoff Nicholson’s Whitbread-shortlisted novel, Bleeding London, in which the character, Stuart London, walks every street in the capital.

"The photographs illustrate the exhilarating diversity that constitutes the fabric of the city," says the RPS's Del Barrett, who came up with the idea. "The participants have been just as diverse — from professionals with top-of-the-range kit to those picking up a camera for the first time.  And, unsurprisingly, a significant number of the photos have been taken on phones."

Bleeding London runs at City Hall from 9 July-14 August, Mondays-Thursdays: 8.30am-6pm; Fridays: 8.30am-5.30pm. Admission is free.
