Thank you all for attending our Information Evening last night. We enjoyed meeting you and sharing more details about our project The Making of Chinatown. What a delight to see the photos of #londonchinatown in the 1970s taken by photographer Gerard McNamara. Thank you for showing them to us! Did you visit #chinatown in the #70s? What do you remember about the shops shown in these photos?

I hadn't even sat down yet when I had someone ask me for directions...unfortunately I did not know where Self Fridges was. When the second foreigner asked me where the organic shop was-I knew exactly where that was! That's where I had my first #coffee here in central London! #coffeetime☕ #citylife #internationalcity #london #centrallondon #coffee #citystreets #tottenhamcourtroad #blog #londonstories #instastories #instatravel #myjourney #authors #songwriters #personalblog #blogger #music #bookseries #books #bookstagram #myjourney

Если вы внезапно поймали себя на мысли, что посмотрели в Лондоне все из своего списка, то вам СЮДА! ⠀ Tate Modern - это как Tate Britain, только по части современного искусства. Сразу скажу, что музей «на любителя»! Многие выставки довольно интересны и заставляют задуматься, тогда как другие - ну вот вообще #нипанятна! ⠀ Также со смотровой площадки (бесплатно!) открывается прекрасный вид на Собор Св.Павла. Рекомендую!

London has inspired countless stories and perspectives over time, but as sweeping changes take place, what lies on the other side for the capital and those who inhabit it? Join acclaimed author Iain Sinclair as he recounts his own perspective on the city he has written about for many years, and what remains or begins for life after London - at an illustrated talk at the Museum this Thursday, 21 February. Sinclair will explore some of the themes of his latest book Living with Buildings and Walking with Ghosts (published by @wellcomecollection) linking well-being and architecture with forms of transport. The writer will also discuss the notion of walking around the M25 motorway and his journey on foot along the London Overground or ‘Ginger line’ at night, exploring how walking allows the walker to understand the consequences of infrastructure. Iain will look at Rebecca Hind’s Scintilla: the glittering speck in Hawksmoor’s Christ Church in Spitalfields (pictured here) which shows how modern art and Christianity can sit side by side, and also to Pepys Estate beside the Thames in Deptford. Iain will be signing copies of his book (published by @wellcomecollection) after the talk.

A little late but better than never: My submission for the #ltmprize2019 currently being showcased at the London Transport Museum The theme this year was #londonstories In this piece I sought to recreate the gathering of fire-spinners every full moon on the banks of the Thames, where the tide is low and water gives way to fire... Thank you @ltmuseum and @theaoi for organising this wonderful opportunity and event. #digitalpainting #illustration #theaoi #posterprizeforillustration2019 #prizeforillustration #southbank #firespinning #nightscene #londontrasportmuseum #posterdesign

An evening at the ROH is a real treat. If you love dance, classical ballet, big productions and stunning surroundings, you must pay a visit to this striking building in the heart of Covent Garden. Went to see Don Quixote, a Carlos Acosta production and it was vibrant, colourful and uplifting. Highly recommended.

Here’s an amazing story – one that is born from experiences around the world and being brought to fruition right here in London where she is making incredible change. . We will see more of @sophia_bhaumick22, of that I have no doubt. In the latest podcast episode (link in the bio), she tells how her interest in politics and passionate drive for change have led her into the world of men’s boxing. #yourlondonlegacy

Despite living in London all my life this was my first visit to the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green. What a surprise to find this floor. Like the floors of the V&A in Knightsbridge these were made by women prisoners in Woking and Fulham gaols, the work has been dubbed ‘Opus Criminale’ a pun on the traditional Latin mosaic style names. The amazing thing about this floor is it’s clear each square paviour was made by an individual prisoner so we can clearly see the different hands of each womans work. #mosaic #craft #opuscriminale #wokinggaol #womeninprison #victorianlondon #v&a #victoriaandalbertmuseum #londonstories

One of our favourite east London landmarks is the historic Truman Brewery chimney sitting bang on Brick Lane. This 48 metre-high boiler house chimney was built from 1000 tonnes of brick. The founder, Sir Benjamin Truman, had the brewery name built in to the side of the tower in white brick. Embedding these bricks in to the fabric of the chimney has meant that even after years of repurpose and exposure to the elements the Truman brewery name still stands strong. #trumanbrewery #bricklane #bricksixtyinsight . . . @trumanbrewery @trumansbeer #madeinlondon #trumanchimney #bricksixty #londonstories #londonstreets #brickwork #brickarchitecture #londonarchitecture #brickisback #londoner #londonliving #londonhistory #londonbrick #londonbricks #londonlife #bricklove

the first time i wear my red raincoat, i'm not sure i like it very much. • my first impression is that it makes me look like a child. i stand next to my mum, looking into the living room mirror, and i can't quite shake the thought that i look nothing like the bold and larger-than-life eighteen-year-old i so desperately want to become. • but a month later, when i end up stranded and alone in the city of my dreams - when i turn into the girl who will drag her 25kg suitcase up the entire country and back down, who will sleep in hostels and end up lost in the middle of the night more times than she can count, who will leave notes for strangers in books before donating them because her suitcase is so, so heavy - by a twist of fate, i'm wearing the red raincoat. • for all its chaos, it's a week i would never give back. and apart from everything else it teaches me, it makes me love my red raincoat more than i ever expected. the same brand-new red raincoat that had no stories at all attached to it when i boarded the first plane is now forever the red raincoat i was bold and proud and fearless in, lost in the dead of night in the city of my dreams. and the girl in the red raincoat is someone i never even realised i had in me. • because the girl in the red raincoat is a fucking badass. when she needs to, she will walk out on you with her head held high and never look back. she blasts all my heroes on her beat-up headphones as the sun sets over king's cross station, and just like that, she's invincible. she's got a backbone made of steel. she doesn't need you to stand up for her because, as it turns out, she can do that herself just fine. • and i think she'd make her hogwarts house very proud. because even in her lowest moments, she is not scared. in fact, it was in that week, and in that red raincoat, that i learned how fearless the girl i had become could be.

“Where are you from?”- A long time ago, a small boy came with his English father from the sticky heat of Burma to a small town in Somerset to be raised by dutiful white English relatives, and an English boarding school. He could do that in those colonial days. I did not look like the other children in the town, or in the school but I was not persecuted or bullied. I belonged most of the time, but I knew I was different. The repeated question, nine times out of ten asked well-meaningly, “Where are you from?” A question that hovered over me with the sub-text that I was Other, but I also thought of myself as English.

The New Londoners’ project started four years ago, when thinking of a different way to photograph migration, one of the great issues of our time. I wanted to explore the seismic shift in what it means to be British, which for so long has meant white British. I focused on London because not only is it my home, but it is also the most ethnically diverse city in the world.
