Dani Salvadori has joined Bleeding London and might be creating an imaginary London!
“I'm a born and bred Londoner and have lived here almost all my life. Despite the stresses, crowding and tourists I still love the place, although I'm slightly gob-smacked at its current, rather shiny, variation. Sometimes I wonder where tatty old London went. I've taken photos for a few years, first with a digital point and shoot camera and for the last couple of years only with my iPhone, which takes a lot better photos than my camera ever did. The world of iPhone photos very easily leads into the world of editing apps and so sometimes I admit I'm guilty of creating an imaginary London rather than the real thing!
I live at the Arsenal, halfway between the old and new stadia, and work in Kings Cross, although I go to meetings across central London and often have to go to deepest south London. I'll probably take most photos where I live and work and so they might feature football fans and construction workers as well as travellers, tube passengers and walkers-by. And, of course, the streets of London.
I love the concept of Bleeding London and really look forward to contributing.”
