'A fabulous and much needed testament to how beautiful living with our differences is.' - Emma Thompson
A magical collection of photographs and stories from the iconic streets of London.
Capturing the inspiring, the moving, the surreal and the everyday, Cathy Teesdale has made it her mission to celebrate the extraordinary diversity of life found in London. Presenting over 250 photographs, she introduces us to the real people of London, their hopes, philosophies, troubles and stories.
Since beginning the Humans of London Facebook page in late 2013, Cathy has travelled across the whole of the Greater London area, photographing and talking to strangers. This collection of personal encounters is the perfect antidote to feeling lost in a big city.
Cathy Teesdale is a photographer, writer and editor who has lived in London for nearly three decades. The past three years of working on the Humans of London project - connecting with and recording so many of the wonderfully diverse range of people to be found within its 611 square miles - has made her fall in love with its phenomenal heart.
