Summer Evening in Mayfair:Leica with Colin O'Brien
A fine Wednesday evening- 29th July 2015- saw 50 fortunate ticket holders, and the staff of Leica filling the lecture theatre at the London Headquarters of Leica in Bruton Place.There was great interest in a lively talk by Colin O'Brien to accompany the launch of his new book published by Spitalfields Life Books. Much more is available at the Spitalfields Life Website, in particular the feature on Colin on July 15th 2015.In black and white, his photography with a 111a Leica is superb and reflects a long gone time in North London (mainly) and the fashions of the 1950's.Centered on Clerkenwell he reflects life in a time of rationing and few luxury goods. As a rather unique afterthought Colin still has the original Leica he acquired as a young man and this was with him at the lecture.Visit Spitalfields Life site to purchase a signed copy.
