- Little London ProjectPhotographs by Toby Allen
Drawing inspiration from the sights and scenes of London, this project uses a tilt and shift style of photography – part of an effort by Allen to encourage the citizens of the capital to view it from a different perspective. .
During the project, he has found himself shooting from some of the most iconic buildings in London, from the Tower 42 to City Hall, St Paul’s, the Barbican and the new Wembley stadium (where he photographed U2).As the eyes of the world turn towards London and the 2012 Olympics, Allen’s ongoing project will culminate in a exhibition that will take place during the summer of 2012. He is also in discussions with publishers.
Allen’s Little London photographs have been published by the BBC, and in the Guardian and the Daily Telegraph. He is a former picture editor at Corbis, one of the world’s leading photography agencies, where he edited images from some of the world’s foremost and award-winning photographers.He has also run a picture desk at the Discovery Channel and, prior to that, worked on Moving Pictures magazine, the international film trade title published at film festivals around the world, including Cannes, Los Angeles and Milan.
