Photographing London is an almost impossible challenge.

It’s so big that the only chance you’ve got is to select one facet of the city and then concentrate on that. So, just before I moved away from the South East of England, I set about taking some pictures of London’s river and the bridges which spanned it. The Thames is a magnificent river, and its bridges, old and new, road and rail, are all different and worthy of a closer inspection than most people normally give them. The colours and the shapes, the different designs and the various locations are quite stunning when you look at them in some detail.

The pictures here were all taken in 1991, and they have all been scanned from original transparencies taken on Fuji Provia 100 film.
