“LDN Reimagined offers a bolder, wiser, more complex vision of how we can see the world. By bringing dreary London to life with fantastical visions that provoke our imagination” – Claire Graves, Webby Awards Executive Director
London is full of landmarks that you’ll be very familiar with. From the historic St Paul’s Cathedral and Tower Bridge to the modern-day architecture of The Shard. It is a city that is forever changing and full of surprises around every corner. But there are a few corners you will never see without looking through the eyes of these works. They will show you a reimagined version of these famous landmarks that will question what you see and have you asking, what is real?
“Robert John’s images take you to a place that is somewhere between a sci-fi novel and reality. Beams of light and dark shadows transport you through the structures and skyline of London where urban grit interfaces with nature.” – Tom Chambers, Photographer and Author
In this exhibition and book, iconic London buildings transform into giant robots, stars are born from flowers, gateways to other worlds open up through the London Eye and show you a different reality. Every image will show you a surreal version of London, taking you on a unique journey through the city you thought you knew.
“The fantastic and now inevitable metropolis of Robert John. The Tooting-born photographer celebrates what ought to be, rather than what promoters and CGI fraudsters would have us believe. His London is animate, alarming, astonishing.” – Iain Sinclair, Author and Film-maker
