Millions pass through the square mile, also known as the City of London, yet few are aware of its true significance. These photographs of people surrounded by the City’s imposing architecture, combined with texts from an acclaimed historian, begin to decode one of the most cryptic and fascinating parts of the capital.

Polly Braden is a documentary photographer whose work examines the relationship between people and the environment in which they find themselves. Capturing the small, often unconscious gestures of her subjects, Polly enjoys long-term collaborations that lend her photographs a unique, quiet intimacy. This is her fifth photography book.

David Kynaston has been a professional historian for over 40 years and written over 20 books including the widely acclaimed four-volume 'The City of London (1994-2001)'.

This is the first edition.
