You can tell that Wolf Suschitzky has been a cinematographer as well as a still photographer. In this quiet evocation of the drama of reading, the main figure almost looks like a posed actor; while central London itself, bathed in slanting, early-morning light, resembles nothing so much as a giant, empty stage set. There's a nice autobiographical touch to this image: Suschitzky comes from a family of booksellers and publishers.

Primarily known as a music photographer, Morris also produced a scintillating chronicle of Hackney in the ‘70s, back when the borough was more than a playground for hipsters, and mixed-race communities embraced radical politics as a matter of course.

      Rsquo; copy; Getty Images Bob Collins: Rush Best, Victoria Best, 1960 The clothingrsquo;s certainly different from today, in Collinsrsquo;s wonderfully dynamic, impressionistic image from over half a london ago; and the street ironwork and signage similarly seem quaintly old-fashioned.
