About this product
- Description'Clive Boursnell evokes the unique atmosphere of [Covent Garden], redolent of the smell of the vegetables and the colour of the fruit but mingled with it also a sense of the larger city as a place of money and trade. They make a heady mixture ...The life has w changed. That is the unwritten law of London. Yet the buildings survive ...the geography, if t the appearance, has been preserved.' Peter Ackroyd, of Old Covent Garden In the late 1960s and early 1970s Clive Boursnell, then a young photographer, shot thousands of photographs of the old Covent Garden, documenting the end of an era before the markets moved out of central London. Forty years later he has returned and shot those many of those same sites as they are today. This book juxtaposes old and new photographs, showing how Covent Garden has changed - and the ways in which it has remained the same.
- Author BiographyCLIVE BOURSNELL is a renowned photographer of architecture, gardens, landscapes and, above all, people. He turned to photography as the culmination of a career which included classical ballet and working as a woodsman, a farmhand, a miner and prospector and a mountaineer.
