Fragments of London

I've just added a new album to my Flickr page of square photographs (which I call "Fragments") of London. I will be adding to this album as time goes on, but if you fancy having a look at some arty unfamiliar views of familiar landmarks in London, then by all means have a browse!

Photographs of Jack the Ripper's London

For those reading who have an interest in all things historical, then a visit to the East End of London (specifically Whitechapel and Spitalfields) is very much recommended.

I make a point of visiting on a regular basis, and always like to explore the various streets and alleyways on the look out for that next arty shot. In preparation for the second edition of "Past Traces" (see previous posts), I visited the capital on the 28th August, and spent a fair few hours both in daylight and after dark taking some new photos.

These, and ones taken on previous visits can be viewed on my Flickr page.

Book promotional video

In addition to the video mentioned in the previous post, there's also this short promotional video, that gives an idea of what my book is all about.

Watch it here.

Past Traces by Andrew Firth

Hello all!

Well, I thought I'd drag myself into the 21st Century at long last, and get me a blog set up. On this page, I'll be posting all manner of things that interest me, and that I hope will be of interest to those visiting.

My interests include photography, (particularly of London), electronic music, and video making. There'll be posts on all three of these, plus anything else I think of as time goes on.

To start with, here's a video I've produced showing a walk around the East End of London. It covers the areas linked with the Whitechapel murders of 1888-91, but don't let that put you off!

Past Traces - The Walk

The full walk is outlined in my book "Past Traces" which is available from the blurb publishing service. There's also an option to preview the first 15 pages.

I'll be posting more East End related stuff later.
