London is a vast sprawling metropolis, constantly evolving and growing, yet throughout its complex past and shifting present, the humor, unique character, and bulldog spirit of the people have stayed constant. This book Taschen London, Portrait of a City salutes all those Londoners, their city, and its history. This is a photographic journey through the history of this epic city. Samuel Johnson famously said that: "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life." London is a vast sprawling metropolis, constantly evolving and growing, yet throughout its complex past and shifting present, the humor, unique character, and bulldog spirit of the people have stayed constant. This book salutes all those Londoners, their city, and its history. From Victorian London to the Swinging 60s; from the Battle of Britain to Punk; from the Festival of Britain to the 2012 Olympics; from the foggy cobbled streets to the architectural masterpieces of the millennium; from rough pubs to private drinking clubs; from Royal Weddings to raves, from the charm of the East End to the wonders of the Westminster; from Chelsea girls to Hoxton hipsters; from the power to glory: in page after page of stunning photographs London gets the photographic tribute it deserves.

About the Author: Born in Halle in Germany in 1935, Elmar Ludwig began his apprenticeship as a photographer in Munich in 1951, aged 16. He got his first job with Foto Reger and subsequently spent two years as an assistant to Karl Hugo Schmölz, a well-known architecture and advertising photographer in Cologne. 1962 Ludwig was recruited as a postcard photographer by Irish publisher John Hinde Ltd. He spent the next few years travelling around the world from Britain to Australia and from Canada to the Bahamas. At the end of the 1960s he established his own studio in Munich, specializing in architecture, product and advertising photography.
