  • Pictures Of The Abyss (Firth)

    Available to pre-order!

    PICTURES OF THE ABYSS explores the locations photographed by Jack London for his 1903 'The People of the Abyss', which recorded the writer's visit to the East End in the wake of the Ripper. Through painstaking research of London's work, new scans of his original photographs from the Jack London archive, and stunning new photography, Andrew Firth has created a unique visual survey of what now remains of the old ‘Abyss’.

      Another example of Andrew's work which he shared on FB....






      In Jack London’s time, Frying Pan Alley was one of the most squalid and run-down areas of Spitalfields. Today it is a much more agreeable location, although maybe a little less atmospheric. This, and over sixty other photo-montages appear in Andrew Firth’s new book entitled “Pictures of the Abyss” which can be pre-ordered now at http://www.mangobooks.co.uk/book.php?b=55

          Last chance to get aboard this print run... limited edition signed and numbered copies available for just a few more days.





          PICTURES OF THE ABYSS by Andrew Firth:
          Last chance to pre-order.
          “The shadow of Christ's Church falls across Spitalfields Garden, and in the shadow of Christ's Church, at three o'clock in the afternoon, I saw a sight I never wish to see again.”
          Author Jack London’s visit to the grimy slums of London’s East End in 1902 afforded a glimpse of the grim existence of those who endured poverty, crime and disease on a daily basis rarely seen outside of what he would called the Abyss in his classic book published the following year.
          London’s account was well illustrated with photographs of the area which he had taken himself, although many of these have until now been frustratingly difficult to identify.
          Photographer Andrew Firth has painstakingly researched these locations and, using new high resolution scans of the original photographs in the Jack London archives, has lovingly created a series of ‘then and now’ photo-montages with accompanying maps and modern-day comparison shots.
          Pre-orders for limited edition signed and numbered copies close this coming Monday, 31 August 2020.
