Comments: hardcover, quarter-bound, gold foiled,145 x 205mm, Introduction by Iain Sinclair, first edition

Book 8 from the series 'East London Photo Stories' 

Nicholas Sack's black and white photographs of office workers in and around the City of London capture isolated individuals and set them against the imposing architecture of modern London. The work is beautiful but also unnerving and reminds us of the alienation that can be felt in the heart of a city as well as obliquely commenting on the moral uncertainty of the banking practices in the City . The book is accompanied by an introductory essay by the well-known writer Iain Sinclair.

After drumming in rock bands and gaining a master’s degree in journalism, Nicholas Sack took up photography in his mid-twenties. He enjoyed a thirty-year career freelancing for magazines, but now concentrates on personal projects shot on black & white film on long walks across London and printed in his darkroom. This is Sack’s second book; Uncommon Ground was published to critical acclaim in 2004.
