Does anyone know of any published photos of the Borough Market area ? I am leaving SE1 soon and would like to find some good pictures of one of my favorite places to take away - my efforts with the camera just don't do it justice. Every time I visit, there seem to be people bristling with huge cameras, looking very professional, but I've never come across any pictures for sale anywhere.
Local Photographer Steve Hollingshead can help you. He exhibits and sells photos of the area, currently on exhibition in Bankside Restaurant. He is also producing a calander with great pics of the area for 2004
I've snapped up one of the calendars too - I believe there's some available for sale in Bedales on Bedale St and also in Vinopolis. The photos are from the whole of London rather than just Borough, but he's a local guy so there are several from SE1 including some from the market. The web site as mentioned by James is well worth a look too, as is the exhibition at the Bankside restaurant, and I'm sure Steve would do a commission if you like the look of what you see but cant find exactly what you want.
For a slightly different slant on the area [and if you're inclined to spend the dosh - £40 each?] there are 3 prints available taken from paintings of the Market as it was only a few years ago, by local artist Mike Challenger. They are available from the artist himself or from the 'Chicken shop' [sorry - can't recall the name] next door to the temporary reincarnation of the Borough Cafe in Stoney St. The originals are owned by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
I too would highly recommend Steve's calendars. Each one is a numbered limited edition from only 250 and it really captures the spirit of London. There is at least one Borough Market pic in it, taken during October Plenty this year. Head to Bankside Restaurant to see his prints, which are available to purchase. I believe some will also be available from Vinopolis when the new tourist information centre opens there at the end of the month too.
For more market pics, pick up your free copy of the Borough Market News from the Market stands or go to your friendly estate agents and ask for their brochure for 54 Lant Street. It's got some fabulous pictures of the Market and makes a great coffee table book!
