London native Paul Anthony Scane has been documenting the ‘unseen’ side of London using a variety of analogue cameras. The work aims to document and display an alternate viewpoint of the U.K’s capital city whilst revealing undiscovered aspects.

In 2018, Paul met Graphic Designer, James W. Mills at a photography exhibition on Portobello Road, where the pair realised they shared a passion for vintage negatives. This lead to the birth of ‘London Unseen’.

Vintage Photography

London Unseen is building an ever-growing archive of memorable imagery that documents the city from the 1890’s to the 1980’s from original slides and negatives; all of which have been professionally scanned on a top of the range Hasselblad Flextight X5 drum scanner.

By preserving this important part of our archive, we hope that our collection of vintage London photography will satisfy anyone with a curiosity of memories from the past that will show the rapid changes to have swept over the city.
