The Lives of Londoners Captured by John Kortland

I tried really really hard to narrow this down to 10 images, honest I did, but I can’t keep up with John Kortland’s awesomeness at capturing Londoners anymore so I had to post more. Captions are his as well and there’s plenty more photography on his Flickr photostream where these came from so be sure to stop by and admire. The last one of the man with the wind in his white hair and the missing shoe has to be one of my all time favourites from John so far.

  1. Some great shots here. I like the balance – the mix of funny and very sad which is very London. I enjoyed the secret phoning ( is she a spy 🙂 ) and secret surfing..hilarious but the 2 men lying on their backs is a class shot…. great capture

  2. Mine would have to be “this book drives me up the wall.” I read this post about 30 minutes ago and am still perplexed as to what the motive is, especially for a man in a suit to do this.
