Trope London by Sam Landers
Winner of the 2020 Nikon Photography Travel Book of the Year, Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards Trope London, the second volume in the Trope City Editions series, celebrates the meeting of traditional and modern architecture that colors every view of the city. The collection highlights the photographic images of fourteen emerging and independent photographers from London and beyond, who through their passion for the craft, creative development, and social media smarts have amassed a collective Instagram following of one million. This carefully curated and bound collection of 199 stunning photographs offers a new perspective of London. Each of the nine chapters is accompanied by a map, along with the locations where the photographs were taken. From high above the London Eye to deep within the Underground, these images command a strong point of view: digitally processed, filtered, toned, de-saturated, sharpened, for a very urban sensibility. Showcasing both the moody romanticism and striking modernism of contemporary London, the images reveal distinctive and dramatic visions of one of the world's greatest cities.
