Book Description

1 Mar 2010
London at Night is a fascinating tour of the city as seen through the lens of award-winning aerial photographer Jason Hawkes. Taken from a helicopter, the images offer a fresh perspective on such familiar landmarks as the London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, St Paul s Cathedral and the Gherkin, as well as unexpected views of daily life in the capital: office blocks are deserted as commuters make their way home through busy traffic, shoppers crowd a festively lit Regent Street, and tourists and revellers head for the bars and theatres of the West End. By night even the sweeping, illuminated curves of a junction on the M25 have a certain beauty. Accompanied by informative captions and an introduction by Kenneth Powell, Hawkes s photographs bring the city to life and make a captivating book that will appeal to anyone interested in London s ever-changing landscape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hallucinatory Digital Imagery 2 Oct 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Jason Hawkes' mesmerising images of the great capital at night are a thing of true beauty.

Using the highest-end Nikon digital cameras, he has captured pictures of eye-popping clarity, hundreds of feet from above - bolted into a helicopter, through open doors in freezing temperatures over consecutive nights. It was worth the effort, for what you see here is an entirely new take on this greatest of all European capital cities.

My only gripe about this book is that it isn't physically large enough to do true justice to these fabulous photographs.
