Love London is a neat hardback printed in full colour and black-and-white with 180 photographs taken by Barbara Chandler over a period of over 20 years. The earliest was taken in 1986 of a rag-and-bone man with horse and cart, but many were taken in 2010, when this book was taking shape. Then there are over 100 fascinating quotations about the capital, matched with the photographs. They range from a 15th century poem to snippets from modern newspapers and blogs. The book is a hard-back, well-designed, beautifully-bound and small enoough (just) to post through a letter box – a coffee table tome it is not. It is published by Batsford, and the price is £9.99.

I am self-taught, and have been taking photographs seriously for over 30 years. Mostly my work is out on the street, observing people, buildings and so on.
I have photographed substantially in London, my home town, but also all over Poland and Italy, and in France, Russia, Turkey, Finland and more.
I have had numerous exhibitions: my biggest to date was called Love London, and was shown at Habitat on London's famous Regent Street.
My framed prints have sold all over the world, including in London, Paris, Milan and Tokyo
My most successful print for sale is
The cards I make by hand to show off my photographs are on sale in numerous specialist boutiques, but are on sale through my website for a special price.
