Synopsis

London at Night by Jason Hawkes

London at Night is a fascinating tour of the city as seen through the lens of award-winning aerial photographer Jason Hawkes. The images, taken from a helicopter, offer a fresh perspective on such familiar landmarks as the London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, St Paul's Cathedral and the 'Gherkin', as well as unexpected views of daily life in the capital: office blocks are deserted as commuters make their way home through busy traffic, shoppers crowd a festively lit Regent Street, and tourists and revellers head for the bars and theatres of the West End. By night even the sweeping, illuminated curves of a junction on the M25 have a certain beauty. Accompanied by informative captions and an introduction by Kenneth Powell, Hawkes's photographs bring the city to life and make a captivating book that will appeal to anyone interested in London's ever-changing landscape.
