For a time, I went looking for London. The true London, that is. What a fool I was. The very mention of the place can take you from Dickens to the Blitz to Bridget Jones and onto knife crime, terror attacks, the M25 and oligarchs.
And so I stopped searching. I was relieved. For had I found a single picture that represented this living thing then I would not be feeling the longing to return that I feel right now, tapping at this keyboard in a city in my home nation of New Zealand.
For I am not finished with London. I am addicted to it. Yes, addicted. You can become addicted to London. Well, to everything that goes on around you. It is all those things that go on around you that I present to you today. My pictures of London. Here in an uncompleted photo essay of black and white pictures of London that I very much hope will remain uncompleted.
London in Black & White
Let’s get into the pictures. Here we go.
This photo essay with black and white pictures of London was created by me, David Dunham. I’m a photographer based in Tauranga, New Zealand, who wanders London when it is safe and allowed to travel (the pictures were taken before a pandemic).
If black and white photography is your thing, perhaps head over to my black and white portraits. I also have portraits of artists, and other black and white photo essays, including one called Lost in Music, which is all about the power of glorious sound.
If you’d like to get in touch about black and white photography, perhaps for a project you have in mind, then simply fill in the form below.
Wishing you well, wherever you may be. Best wishes, David.
