Colin O’Brien’s journey of photography began in 1948, and since then he has been photographing the life of Londoners in the eastern part of the town, capturing the drama of the day to day life. He has already exhibited his artwork in several parts of London and has recently launched his book ‘London Life’ at The Society Club in Soho.

This is what makes O’Brien’s images of day to day life in the 50s and 60s – children playing, lovers taking a stroll and even car crashes so significant. The commonplace is so often overlooked, but these photographs are the most important documentation of a way of life that has long since ceased to exist.
