Product description


Johnny Stiletto has a wonderful body of candid street photography work, much of it shot in London during the 1980s. Some iconic moments are captured here; flickering glimpses from a turbulent time in our history. Eclectica The kind of photography book you can have on your lap, in bed or even in the bath, if you were so cavalier. There is something pleasantly intimate about the experience of possessing these images. Let Them Eat Cake An intriguing look at an often derided decade. Amateur Photographer A metropolitan rake's progress through the palpitating heart of a city around which a whole country, and culture, pivoted... This is a little gem of a photo book. Snap it up. Guardian
