All About the Lea

Well, not really all about it, but that was the title thought up by the people at Cody Dock for my show there last March and April, with pictures of Bow Creek from the 1980s and 90s.

For that show I made a ‘microsite’ to sell three of the prints, also named All About the Lea, and it is still on-line.  Two of the prints are A3 C-type prints and the third is a 20″ x 10″ panorama (all sizes include some white border) and I was pleased with the quality from theprintspace who handle the orders.

The images are available through theprintspace at £200 each for the A3 prints and £250 for the panorama. What sold rather better at the show were copies of my book, Before the Olympics, which includes these and many more pictures.

The book is still available from Blurb (where there is a preview), where it now costs £29.20 plus postage and packing which I think adds another £6 or so. But you can order copies direct from me at the reduced price of £25 + £2 postage (for those in the UK, more for overseas.) See here for details of this and my other books available direct and how to order.

Most of the pictures I post here or on My London Diary or my other sites are also available direct from me at more reasonable rates too – you can find the details here.  There are a few images which are not available either because they are sold through galleries or because they were taken for personal use only.

A 15″x 10″ print on A3 of a black and white image, such as this view of Shad Thames in Bermondsey taken in 1981, printed by inkjet on a baryta paper (the printer calls it Gicleé) costs £85 plus postage and packing. Colour pictures are available as C-types at the same cost.


There are no adverts on this site and it receives no sponsorship, and I like to keep it that way. But it does take a considerable amount of my time and thought, and if you enjoy reading it, a small donation – perhaps the cost of a beer – would be appreciated.
