Books Info:

Unseen London free pdf Peter Dazeley has gained access to the hidden interiors of some of London's most iconic buildings, from Tower Bridge to Battersea Power Station, Big Ben to the Old Bailey. His photographs of these buildings - some derelict, but many still working - are astonishing. Here is a collection of some 50 extraordinary locations, with a thoughtful text by Mark Daly which tells the story of how each of these places was created, how they are used, and what they reveal about the currents of power flowing through the city. Unseen London takes you backstage at some of the capital's great theatres, into the changing rooms of some of our greatest temples of sport, into the heart of the Establishment, the boiler room of the city's infrastructure and behind the scenes at some of the most opulent buildings in the Square Mile.

About Peter Dazeley

PETER DAZELEY FRPS, known as Dazeley, is a celebrated London photographer renowned for fine art and advertising photography. He was born in West Kensington and studied photography at Holland Park School, now known as the Socialist Eton. Being dyslexic he left school at 15 without any formal qualifications. He feels his dyslexia is an asset because it gives him the ability to look at problems and objectives from a different point of view- he is a meticulous planner and imaginative problem solver. "Making the ordinary look extraordinary is Dazeley's gift," says Sarah Ryder Richardson, who represents Dazeley in the UK. His work has won many awards from organisations across the world, including the Association of Photographers and the Royal Photographic Society in the UK, EPICA in France, Applied Arts Magazine in Canada, and Graphis Inc. in the USA . Dazeley is one of the few modern photographers whose fine art work is produced as platinum prints and is currently working on several fine art projects out of his own studio complex in Chelsea, London. Dazeley became a member of the Association of Photographers in 1977 and became a life member in 1984. In June 2013 he was awarded a Fellowship by the Royal Photographic Society. Fellowship is the highest distinction of the RPS and recognizes original work and outstanding ability. He is married and has a daughter and a son- they live in Coombe Hill, Surrey. -- Mark Daly is a writer and publisher with a longstanding interest in secret and little-known aspects of London. He has also devised a number of walking tours of unseen London. He lives in South Nutfield, Surrey."
