Famous London Photographers

Famous London Photographers

As well as being a great city in its own right, London is the birthplace of a number of great photographers and in this post we’d like to highlight some of their work. Not all of them chose to create images of London – some preferred to focus on famous faces from Vivien Leigh to the Beatles, Kate Moss and beyond.
