"Walking into the city, you found narrow alleys between the buildings with dripping pipes overhead, discharge flowing in gutters, people stripped to the waist in their underwear working in tiny factories, the sound of metal pounding metal, butchered animals, unlicensed dentists, a two-man rubber plunger factory, carts stacked with steaming food, everything mixed together. It felt unreal (especially in the early days), and yet totally normal to everyone living and working there." —Photographer Greg Girard, on life inside the City of Darkness.

  2. Project of the Day — Charlie Phillips has been photographing African-Caribbean funeral practices in London for fifty years. How Great Thou Art is a photo book that celebrates the evolving traditions, people, and cultures surrounding those practices. The title is taken from a popular hymn sung at funerals, which praises the life of an individual. It’s a declaration of love and celebration for the traditions and cultures of the African diaspora in London.
