Conor Donlon

 

Text by Alex Needham

 

“For many years I have thought about the possibility of creating monothematic portrait books of friends I have photographed over a long period. Finally I had the time over Christmas to begin this process and Iʼm very happy with the draft for Conor Donlon. The book runs chronologically over fifteen years and is therefore not only a portrait of a person, but also of a friendship, the city of London, and the nightlife in East London, which no longer exists. Haircuts, menʼs fashion… many aspects emerge through the perspective of time. Londoners will recognise, for example, The Ghetto, Joiners Arms and the George & Dragon.”
