9780002202152: Over London

A fascinating aerial overview of just how much London has changed since the 1920s. Jason Hawkes is the most successful aerial photographer working in Britain today, while the most extensive aerial archive in the country is that of Aerofilms, with a huge number of pictures that date back to just after the First World War. The concept behind this fascinating new book is a simple one -- to show the enormous changes that have taken place in London over the past 75 years or so by juxtaposing around 85 archive pictures from Aerofilms with 85 contemporary pictures by Jason Hawkes. Jason's shots will be as near as possible from the same perspective and with the same crop as the earlier ones. It will be an extraordinary record of how some parts of London are changed in minor details only, whereas others, such as the City and Docklands, are barely recognizable.

From the Publisher:

In 1921, when the earliest of the photographs in this book was taken, George V was on the throne, David Lloyd George was Prime Minister, and Queen Elizabeth II had not yet been born. That same year, the first helicopter made its shaky maiden flight over France, making international headlines. Almost 80 years later, booking a helicopter to take the color images for this book was a matter of routine for aerial photographer Jason Hawkes ‹ a far cry from the rickety biplanes used by Aerofilms for the early photography. Hawkes had been inspired by these old pictures of London and decided to recreate the same views to provide graphic evidence of the changes in the capital during the intervening years. The result is both a fascinating aerial history lesson and a photojournalistic delight.

About the Author:

Jason Hawkes is the most successful aerial photographer working in Britain today; his bestselling books include London from the Air, Britain from the Air and Provence from the Air (with Peter Mayle). His 360o Around London will be published by HarperCollins in May 2000.
