Images of London are one giant clichÃ©, says photographer Ricky Leaver, who has channelled his creativity into Londonstills.com – an off-the-wall, on-line photographic archive. ‘It’s always Big Ben, Beefeaters, Piccadilly Circus, buses and black cabs. And it doesn’t work,’ he says.
Leaver shoots anything that delves into the capital’s corners to capture its ‘heart, soul and spirit’, from gaslights to graffiti, catacombs to churches. But contradicting his initial spiel, he adds: ‘We do Beefeaters, red buses, black cabs and Piccadilly Circus too.’
