Riassunto: This remarkable book presents a modern photographic panorama of the River Thames alongside one created by the Port of London Authority in 1937. London's Changing Riverscape is a fascinating study of how the 20th century has changed the face of the historic river. What was then one of the world's busiest ports is now the focus of a city's regeneration, with warehouse conversions, financial institutions, and the Olympics. This updated edition shows in wonderful detail how, despite the sparkling new developments and brash architectural statements that have sprung up, a sense of continuity is apparent when the two panoramas, separated by more than 70 years, are shown side by side.
About the Author: Graham Diprose is Lead Tutor in Photography in the School of Graphic Design, at the London College of Communication, the largest college in The University of the Arts, London. Having spent many years as an advertising photographer, he now works with undergraduate and postgraduate students developing skills in all areas of applied and experimental digital and craft photography. Always interested in digital photography, Graham's first capture was in eight black and white tones on a BBC Micro in 1984! A more recent picture at 248 million pixel of Gas Street Basin, Birmingham was until recently, the largest digital photograph in the world shot from a single lens position. Graham has been a Co-partner in Londons Found Riverscape since its inception and was involved in making the 1997 panorama, exhibitions at City Hall and Museum of London and the publication of London's Riverscape - Lost and Found . Over the past decade he has also worked with digital photographer, Jeff Robins to produce a series of over 60 past and present images of the River Thames for their project "...in the footsteps of Henry Taunt" The hardback book of the project "River Thames Revisited" was published in October 2007 by Frances Lincoln and has accompanied an national exhibition with English Heritage as a co-partner which was also launched in October 2004 at River & Rowing Museum, Henley and will tour for some years to come. Jeff Robins and Graham have also been invited to write a new text-book of photography for Thames and Hudson, to be published in the UK and USA in 2011. Born in London, Charles Craig trained as a commercial photographer at The London School of Printing and Graphic Arts. He entered the world of professional photography in the early 1960s, and the world of academia in the mid 1970s. Charles Craig died in 2011. Mike Seaborne is both a photographer and Senior Curator of Photographs at the Museum of London. He lectures and writes on photography and in 1995 he curated the landmark exhibition, 'Photographer's London, 1839-1994' and wrote the accompanying book. His own images have been widely exhibited and published. Mike's photography is primarily concerned with exploring the urban landscape. In the early 1980s he focused on London's Docklands because it was clear that this area was about to undergo a major transformation. The resulting pictures evoke a lost landscape which is in stark contrast to the thriving Docklands of today. From the 1990s Mike broadened his range of subject-matter but developed a particular interest in the landscapes created by the various social housing schemes in London from the late 19th century to the present day. Most recently he has been photographing in the Lower lea Valley, site of the London Olympics in 2012, and other areas in transition, especially in the inner-city, where rapid change is occuring as a result of social/cultural forces such as gentrification and ethnic concentration.
