  2. During the 1920s, cinematographer Claude Friese-Greene travelled across the UK with his new colour film camera. His trip ended in London, with some of his most stunning images, and these were recently revived and restored by the BFI, and shared across social media and video websites.

    Since February I have attempted to capture every one of his shots, standing in his footsteps, and using modern equivalents of his camera and lenses. This has been a personal study, that has revealed how little London has changed.


    There have been lots of enquiries about the music ... It's Pachelbel's "Canon in D Major", and this recording came from this brilliant website ... http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html

    Also, the BFI manage the rights to the restored versions of Claude Friese-Greene's "The Open Road", of which the London shots are a segment.
