Beyond the City
Moving from Henri Cartier-Bresson to the pioneering photojournalist Eve Arnold to lesser known but historically significant figures, Another London examines the landscape of the city as a dynamic metropolis. Comprising a selection from a major photographic collection assembled by Eric and Louise Franck, the exhibition spans the period from the 1930s to the 1980s. The work on show comes from Eastern and Western Europe, the Soviet Union, Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean. The collection is vast but it is united by its subject matter: the images document the lives and communities of a single city. Creating a unique vision of the capital and its communities, Another London highlights the technical skill and originality of photographers dealing with a subject as well-documented as London. Another London opens at Tate Britain on 27 July and continues until 16 September.
