As the capital city of the United Kingdom, London has always been a melting pot of multiple cultures and classes. A 15-year photographic project documents the unique evolution of this storied city via analog images – and it's collated in the photo book, London Unseen

The project is the work of photographer and native Londoner, Paul Anthony Scane, who spent a decade and a half documenting the unseen side of the city using some of the best film cameras ranging from 35mm to medium and large format, including Leica, Hasselblad, Linhof 4x5 and Mamiya 6x7.
