29th November 2012: London's Changing Riverscape plus photography tips

Photography: 'The New Basics'
Photography: 'The New Basics'

In 1937 the Port of London Authority commissioned a continuous photographic panorama of both riverbanks of the Thames from London Bridge to Greenwich which survived in the PLA archive and became part of their collection in the Museum of London.

In 1997, London's Found Riverscape Partnership of Graham Diprose, Mike Seaborne and Charles Craig made a new panorama using 6cm x 17cm colour transparency film and also shot on 5” x 4” Black and white sheet film because of concerns about the long term archival durability and permanence of colour film.

In 2007 LFRP were invited to make a new Digital version of the panorama to be shown in the Museum of London’s new City Galleries opening in 2011. The Port of London Authority sponsored LFRP to make the new panorama as part of their Centenary Celebrations for March 2009, Frances Lincoln agreed to publish a new hardback book ‘Londons Changing Riverscape’ and we also made an exact ink jet replica of the 1937 original to go into archive at MoL alongside it.
