2010's - A Decade
of London Photography

posted in Stories on updated by

A decade of London photography seen through a single photograph from each of ten years. The 2010's was a dynamic period of change in the city. An investment boom followed the global financial crisis of 2008. By the end of the decade in 2019 more than 500 new London skyscrapers were in the pipeline. This is one of three reviews of the 2010's. Alongside this London series you can view the Colour and the Black and White collections. Enjoy browsing these images from a wonderful ten years.

2010: Docklands

2015: London Cityscape

This skyline looked wonderful in 2015 as new skyscrapers had been constructed and few cranes were visible. At other times in the decade construction work made this vista much less attractive.
