On The Table Read, “the best arts magazine in the UK“, A Year In London is a stunning coffee table book by Amadeus Long, who spent 2016 attempting to capture the essence of each of London’s 272 Tube stations.
A Year In London
In his triumphant photographic collection, A Year in London, Amadeus Long shares with readers the efforts of his 2016 project to photograph each of London’s 272 tube stops and surrounding areas.
A positive and unexpected result of the photographer’s project is the book’s function as a chronicler of social history, presented in a hardcover coffee table format that elevates “The Tube” to a thing of visual and rough-edged beauty.
A Year in London is nothing short of a photographic spectacle because it captures the heart and soul of a system that has served the capital well since 1863, when the Metropolitan Railway between Paddington and Farringdon became the first urban, underground railway in the world.
Synopsis Of A Year In London
In 2016 I spent a year photographing the areas immediately surrounding every station on the entirety of London’s vast underground system. I started on January 1st, 2016, and 272 tube stops later I finished on the 24th December of the same year.
The book seeks to blend many photographic styles from street to architecture to nature and encapsulates London’s manic grandeur into a visually stimulating and socially curious book
This unique coffee table book makes a great gift for photography fans and London lovers alike and serves as a time capsule of London in 2016.
Amadeus is a 33-year-old child who is desperately avoiding growing up. He learns to understand the world through photography. More specifically, it is the manner in which he is unable to fully comprehend the world and remains in a state of constant awe that can only be found in the space between.
He has worked for Adobe, Absolut Vodka, and Kingston Technologies since beginning his photography career seven years ago. He decided to concentrate on his own projects after working as a Motorsport photographer for FIA Formula E for a while. Since then, he has traveled to numerous countries and is working on a number of photography books.
Despite his German name, he was raised in London and now lives in New York to work on an ambitious street photography project that will be released next year.
