Description - Sergio Larrain: London. 1959. by Agnes Sire

In 1958, Sergio Larrain's photographs of a smoggy, down-at-heel London captured an extraordinarily powerful vision of the city. Larrain's London is a fast-moving blur of activity. He revealed the signs of the emergence of a new, post-war London society - in its streets, parks, pubs and clubs - and captured the class divisions, the burgeoning fashions of its youth, and the everyday life of Londoners about to enter a new decade: the Sixties. The photographs brought Larrain to the attention of Henri Cartier-Bresson, who immediately signed him to Magnum Photos.

This edition comprises the entire series including around forty previously unseen images from the archives of Magnum Photos. These powerful photographs conjure up the mood of a coal-fired, smoke-laden London that has long since disappeared.

Buy Sergio Larrain: London. 1959. by Agnes Sire from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
