From Tower Bridge to Battersea Power Station, Big Ben to the Old Bailey, embark on a thrilling tour of the hidden interiors of some of London's most iconic buildings. Celebrated photographer Peter Dazeley takes you deep into the boiler room of the city's infrastructure, into the changing rooms of our greatest temples of sport, into the heart of the Establishment, and behind the scenes at the most opulent buildings in the Square Mile. Photographs of these extraordinary buildings – some derelict, but many still working – are accompanied by the story of how each of these places was created, how they are used, and what they reveal about the currents of power flowing through the city. See a glimpse of London behind closed doors with this unique guide to the city's buildings, revised and updated for 2017 to include the royal palaces of Hampton Court, the Tower of London and the Inigo Jones Banqueting Hall at Palace of Whitehall, and the Royal Courts of Justice, Supreme Court and Bow Street Magistrates Court.

* A fully-illustrated catalog of 60 images by 3 eminent photographers recording first impressions of London, Paris and New York over 3 crucial decades (1930s-1960s) * Images cover some of the most crucial decades of the 20th century, offering fresh perspectives on three great cities * Accompanying an exhibition of same title at Ben Uri Museum & Gallery, London (20 May - 27 August) The first publication to bring together three major twentieth-century photographers - Wolfgang Suschitzky, Dorothy Bohm and Neil Libbert - presenting their artistic responses to three great world cities across three crucial decades. Today, London, Paris, and New York are so familiar that it is hard for a modern viewer to imagine them afresh without the visual expectations fostered by art, film and advertising in the digital age. Yet when each of these photographers arrived at their respective destinations, they found cities that were strange and new to them and responded by photographing them without prejudice or expectation. The photographs reveal that all three cities were not only places of social division and political tension, but also of beauty and magic. The publication and exhibition includes many works never previously exhibited in the UK, and each series presents an opportunity to view an aspect of the work of a renowned photographer in real depth. Contents: Essay by Katy Barron; Interview with Wolfgang Suschitzy by Zelda Cheatle; Interview with Dorothy Bohm by Michael Berkowitz; Interview with Neil Libbert with Jessica Feather; Biographies.
