Colin O’Brien has been documenting the streets of London since 1948 and knows a thing or two about street photography.

Colin’s photographs of mainly urban scenes demonstrate his eye for irony, combined with his obvious professional competence with the camera and in the darkroom, winning competitions and resulting in a number of reviews and critical articles recognising his increasing importance as an exponent of the peripatetic school.

Colin’s creative eye frames, in composition, images that communicate decisive moments. Whether of historical events or narratives of everyday life. Colin has produced a body of work in which poetic beauty is never lost, no matter how commonplace at times the subject matter.
