Romeo: Streets of London


“The cinematic feel to Romeo’s work is all encompassing, choosing to focus on individuals living within a concrete jungle. A clear eye for the scope of the city of London comes through, with Romeo’s experience as an architect influencing heavily upon the work, which helps to frame and situate the subjects. This is street photography at a playful level, charged with humour and the odd cynical gesture. Offering something more than just an engaging communication with another city between photographer and place. Yet with all the humour there is a present tension between the Streets of London’s inhabitants. Cracks begin to emerge as we examine the photographs more, people are stuck in contemplation, boredom, concern and yet, all are fittingly gift wrapped by a remarkable way of shooting.”
