The authors of this book invented photojournalism as they roamed through London creating this book, with Thomson taking pictures and Smith interviewing and writing about the poor people they met on the streets.When you read this book, you will meet a host of Dickensian characters such as: -- John Day: After years of drunkenness, he "chanced to obtain a glimpse of his own countenance reflected in a public-house mirror. His bleared eyes, his distorted features and ignominious, degraded appearance produced so sudden and forcible an impression, that he ... called for a penny glass of beer, and swore that it should be the last."-- Jacobus Parker: Known as the "dramatic shoe-black," he worked for the government and acted in many plays in London theaters. Then, "Suddenly I fell ill, lost the sight of my left eye, and had to leave my regular work ... Now, I am stationed as a shoe-black, at your service, armed with a peddler's licence. ... To tell you the truth, when I think of my past and present, I am surprised to find myself so happy and contented."You will also learn about the trades that helped the poor of Victorian London to survive. You will meet the swagsellers, the mush fakers, the old-clothes dealers, the wall-workers, the ginger-beer makers, the flying dustmen, the street doctors who impress their poor patients by diagnosing them in "crocus Latin," and many others.

Street Life in London (1877-78), by journalist Adolphe Smith and photographer John Thomson, aimed to reveal by the innovative use of photography and essays the conditions of a life of poverty in London. Now regarded as a pioneering photo-text and a foundational work of socially conscious photography - "one of the most significant and far-reaching photobooks in the medium's history" (The Photobook: A History) - Street Life in London failed to achieve commercial success in its own time. In this groundbreaking book, we see the start, but not the conclusion, of a conversation between text and image in the service of education, reportage and social justice. This newly designed and typeset edition contains the full text and makes available to a contemporary audience Thomson's powerful images in their original size and rich colour.

Street photographs are mirror images of society, the subjects are usually unaware that they are being photographed, creating a spontaneous response to life as it happens in front of your eyes. Street photography is unplanned. You really never know what you’re going to get on any given day. A street photo should tell a story, or causes you wonder what is happening at the moment. London is a street photographer's dream. Public markets offer a treasure trove of photos, so you will see images from Borough, Camden and Portabella markets. The city is always crowded and is an excellent source of candid photos. This book is a collection of black and white images of people caught in the act of going about their daily lives.

"Over a period of three days in 1956, a young photographer, Roger Mayne, explored Southam Street, North Kensington, and photographed the children and street life. This London back street became his stalking ground for five years, resulting in one of the great social documents of the era. In 1963 the street and the surrounding area was declared unfit for habitation. By 1969 it had been demolished. Roger Mayne recorded the newly arrived immigrants and the vitality of the street culture. The pictures represent a vanished age, in which child's play, though rumbustious, is marked by innocence. Behind the poverty lay cherished community values which vanished alongside the demolished fabric of the neighbourhood." "Colin MacInnes, whose novel Absolute Beginners described Notting Hill in that period so accurately, praised Mayne's work. His pictures appeared on numerous Penguin book-jackets during the sixties. After the birth of his own children, he continued to photograph in the privacy of his family. He was much influenced by his friends among the painters of St. Ives. For years he has photographed in the Mediterranean and in the landscape of the West Country near his home in Lyme Regis. He is admired by photographers as diverse as Bruce Weber and Don McCullin, and is regarded as one of the masters of British photography."--Jacket.

Visual Typologies from the Early Modern to the Contemporary

Visual Typologies from the Early Modern to the Contemporary investigates the pictorial representation of types from the sixteenth to the twenty- first century. Originating in longstanding visual traditions, including street crier prints and costume albums, these images share certain conventions as they seek to convey knowledge about different peoples. The genre of the type became widespread in the early modern period, developing into a global language of identity. The chapters explore diverse pictorial representations of types, customs, and dress in numerous media, including paintings, prints, postcards, photographs, and garments. Together, they reveal that the activation of typological strategies, including seriality, repetition, appropriation, and subversion has produced a universal and dynamic pictorial language. Typological images highlight the tensions between the local and the international, the specific and the communal, and similarity and difference inherent in the construction of identity. The first full- length study to treat these images as a broader genre, Visual Typologies gives voice to a marginalized form of representation. Together, the chapters debunk the classification of such images as unmediated and authentic representations, offering fresh methodological frameworks to consider their meanings locally and globally, and establishing common ground about the operations of objects that sought to shape, embody, or challenge individual and collective identities.

This brief studies the phenomenon of street children in two cities in Peru. It looks at some of the conceptual issues and, after analysing why children are in the street and what behaviour and which aspirations they exhibit, deals with the policy issues and lessons to be learned. This brief investigates when and why the transition from children on the street (street-working children) to children of the street (street living children) takes place and elucidates how they survive. It explains the fluidity and the risks involved in any type of child street life.
