Please join us in the Bookshop and meet photographer Harry F Conway who is presenting his self published book project Bakerloo.
Harry describes his project as a photography book about the Bakerloo Line and its inhabitants, documenting a piece of a London history, that has already begun to fade. And he says: "For the majority of my life I have used the Bakerloo Line simply as a means of transport to connect to the rest of London. Yet for the past 3 years I have gone about documenting the oldest running tube stock and sought to capture its commuters going about their everyday journeys. I needed to make this book to preserve a piece of London history; as the upholstery has been slowly been phased out recently, soon this old tube stock will follow suit. These carriages of light will soon be a thing of the past and maybe those beautiful physical interactions will be eroded along with them, in this digital age."
Harry Conway was born and raised in North West London in 1990. He says he has spent time at Central St Martins, London College of Communication UAL, among other instituitions. He works strictly with 35mm film only and spends a lot of time wandering London to take portraits of strangers with tattoos. Harry has previously been featured on Channel 4 News, Dazed, ID and London Live among other media outlets.
