London: Patrick Keiller with Rae Hicks



London, published by Fuel Publishing, is the first time that Patrick Keiller’s film of the same name released in 1992, has been fully reproduced in print. The volume offers both a fascinating reflection on the diverse histories of Britain’s capital and an illuminating record of 1992, the year of John Major’s reelection, IRA bombs and the first crack in the House of Windsor. The amazing locations reveal the familiar London of the near past: Concorde almost touches suburban houses as it takes off; Union Jacks fly from Wembley Stadium; and pigeons flock around tourists in Trafalgar Square. In this special evening, the celebrated filmmaker and writer Patrick Keiller, in conversation with artist Rae Hicks, presents the new book and the film that inspired it.
