Artist of the week
Terence Nunn

For over forty years, Terence Nunn has been comprehensively photographing the streets of London.

In the mid 1960’s Terence bought his first camera and has subsequently spent his Sundays habitually roaming the empty streets of London. Trusting his intuition to guide him, rather than pursuing an innate strategy or artistic formula, Terence instinctively knows his next photograph as soon as he sees it.

“In the side-streets of any big city lie the bizarre, the odd and the surreal. Turn a corner and you may find yourself perhaps facing a boarded-up derelict building, a dusty antique-shop window populated by strangely staring dolls or a wall of torn, defaced posters that have long since forgotten the point they were trying to make.”

His passion and dedication for photographing the world he sees around him has lead to an extraordinary catalogue of images spanning his lifetime. His combined curiosity for the unusual and banal have lead him off the beaten track, ultimately mapping the disappearance and inevitable redevelopment of London’s sprawling streets over the last forty years.

All photographs capture a visual moment in time; Terence Nunn’s photographs preserve a moment of a time, which without his sequential documentation would long be forgotten. Bring on Terence Nunn’s retrospective.
