City Focus 13: London, Kings Cross

4 Feb

Peter L Edwards is a former lecturer in urban planning based in Oxford UK. His photographs can be found on Flickr under the screen name “bradman334”
Among his favourite subjects are the streets, architecture and urban landscape of London. He believes, to mis-quote Samuel Johnson, ‘a man who is tired of photographing London is tired of photography’.
He is particularly fond of shooting in areas undergoing a process of transformation as here at King’s Cross.
