London 'Snapshots' by Alex Pink

I roam the streets of London collecting images as I go.

"Document life as you see it, in the small window that you have." Alex Pink

"I don't care about tomorrow when I feel like this today" Primal Scream 2013

London is a unique, fast, exciting City. The pictures seen here are a 'Photo Essay' on London Life and times.

March-April 2014 Work included in 'The Prefab Museum', 17 Meliot Road, SE6 London. A celebration of life living in Prefab housing. Curated by Elisabeth Blanchet, the show includes work from nine artists.

'Currently working on'; A photo essay of The City of London, including Bishopsgate and Shoreditch. I started in 2012 and I will continue into 2014. Some of the pictures you see posted here are part of that collection.

2011-2012 Working with photographer Colin O'Brien we set out to document Whitechapel before Cross Rail and redevelopment moved in. We worked before, during and after the London Olympics 2012, capturing a unique and important window in history.

Hackney Revisted

Hackney Revisited explores the changing landscape over a period of 25 years. In the 1980s Berris Conolly observed and recorded the borough, creating a unique collection of pictures. In 2011 I began to update the collection and further explore the changes. Confining our communications to email maintained a neutral balance and helped us to stay focused on the project's fundamentals.

The project was part of Photomonth 2011 - East London Photography Festival. The exhibition was shown at Chats Palace, Hackney. It ran from the 2nd of September 2011 to January 2012 and received attention from the Telegraph & the BBC's website.

2014 Some of the work is currently on show at Shoreditch Works, 33 Hoxton Square, N1 London.

A book is due out in 2015.
