"Description only excites curiosity:seeing satisfies it"
Boswell's Life of Johnson, 1791
Love London, Barbara Chandler's book of photographs, is published by Batsford, the old-established British publishing house; www.annovabooks.com The book evolved from the Love London exhibition held in Habitat's historic picture gallery on Regent Street in 2008. An edition of 200 prints were produced to support this show, all of which sold out. Read more about the Love London show here: www.barbarachandler.co.uk
Love London (the book) is a neat little hardback, beautifully designed and bound, and small enough to slip into a bag - and it only costs £9.99. With its 180 colour and black-and-white photographs, Londoners are loving it (to keep or for a present), and tourists, too, are snapping it up at gift boutiques, museum shops, and book stores all over the capital.
Photographs are teamed with over 100 quotes about London, from 15th century poetry to a modern blog, with Shakespeare, Milton, Johnson, Dickens and many many more along the way.
Love London is an evolving project, with Barbara Chandler continually adding new work to her Love London portfolio. She is also producing merchandise featuring photographs from the Love London portofolio – find more details on this website.
