Kornelusz Zaczek is his name.
More comings and goings at Victoria.
Recently I read a terrific book - "Rodinsky's Room" by Rachel Lichtenstein.
It's a wonderful insight into the Spitalfields area, the remains of the Jewish community who once lived there, and the imapct of other waves of immigration (Huguenots to Bangladesh, now Eastern Europe too) on the area. It's very movingly written as the author also journeys to Eastern Europe to find the remains of communities there.
I'd definitely recommend it, particularly to anyone watching the way East London is changing these days, to see how it was not so long ago.
In two minds whether to blog this photo or not.
One of the things I wanted to achieve through this blog is an insight into the many faceted sides and the many various communities that make up London. Well I don't think we've got very far with that, most of the photos are either clubbing, or people in the street - basically people openly interacting with others. This photo is a "snatched" shot, but well composed and featuring Londoners, after all.
I'd like to continue the project into next year and work harder at trying to find different places and groups of people to photograph. It's become harder because I now live abroad but as ever I'm open to suggestions and would like to meet people who are keen to expand this project, possibly people with contacts within different communities, or those who work with volunteer or charitable groups, or other projects which may be of interest to the wider London photographic community.
