    Join Danny Rosenbaum and Rupert Vandervell, the co-authors of London Lives, for this illustrated talk. They’ll reveal their insights into London and Londoners through interviewing such luminaries as Zandra Rhodes (fashion designer), David Ison (the Dean of St Paul’s) and Steven McRae (principal dancer at The Royal Ballet) and many others. Using a range of anecdotes Rosenbaum reveals how an inspiring picture of the capital emerged from the 24 people featured (one for each hour of the day). Drawing on the 70 plus photographs in London Lives, Vandervell casts light on the many faces of London and how he chose to photograph them.
