About Eternal London
Giacomo Brunelli’s series Eternal London belongs to a long and rich photographic tradition of celebrated émigré photographers (such as the German and Austrian-born photographers Bill Brandt and Wolfgang Suschitzky) who brought a new visual intensity and originality to photographing their new home - London. Working a century later, Brunelli’s aesthetichowever is less documentary and more personal, inspired by a film-noir sense of disquietude.
Eternal London is the result of two years of constant walking, often for five to six hours a day, chancing upon particular things that sparked Brunelli’s interest – be that the shape of a hat, a piece of clothing or demeanour of a person, the character of an animal or gait of a public statue. Adopting the position of voyeur or spy – he follows his ‘prey’ until he alights on the right time to create the image. By pushing the lens to the closest point of focus, almost touching the subject, he suggests a very close intimacy with these strangers, whilst at the same time respecting their anonymity.
