Publisher's Description

Go where we may, rest where we will, Eternal London haunts us still.
– Thomas Moore

Giacomo Brunelli has been commissioned by The Photographers Gallery, London to produce a body of work about the capital. The result is Eternal London which is to be exhibited at the gallery throughout March and April 2014. In the photographs Brunelli uses his distinct film-noir style to create a unique and evocative view of the city. The images are framed around the silhouettes of people and animals. Though many London landmarks feature including Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the statue of Winston Churchill depicted alongside Big Ben, they are presented in a surprising and very particular way. 

Brunelli photographs during daily early morning walks, randomly choosing a person to follow before focusing his camera on them. Working discreetly, he often uses a removable viewfinder, to be able to photograph his subjects from waist height and other unusual angles, such as directly from behind or using extreme close-up. He protects their anonymity by obscuring their faces whilst exploiting light, shadow and contrast to imbue his images with a dramatic atmosphere and a deep sense of mystery.
