This book cover holds a beautiful simplistic view even though there are a lot of elements involved, due to where they are positioned, balanced and how they're composed. The composition is separated into two parts- pictorial area, and a text area. This creates a nice tension between the two spaces, creating and making a nice simplistic, breathable cover on the eyes.

His intimate, diaristic style of coarse black and white photography captures the essence of today's Soho while drawing you back into the depths of its history.
