London Portraits
by sabine7 / August 23, 2005


Mumbai photographer Adil Jain captures a very modern and contemporary London with his series of London Portraits. He captures traditional symbols (the typical red phone box, the ubiquitous London cab, a bobby on horseback, half-timbered architecture complete with pug lifted from Country Life) juxtaposed with subjects representing a faster, harder pace in the old city. Our fave shot is of the kipping couple on a bench, seemingly oblivious to the graffiti of the newlyweds behind them. A picture you won’t see in any glossy bridal magazines.

Adil Jain's portraits are in no need of titles. His lens is so sharp that absolutely nothing is lost in translation.
