Photographer Edo Zollo Stalks the Streets of London at Night
London is without doubt an amazing city, vibrant in its culture and history, and full of landmarks well worth visiting. The same can be said of the place once the moon takes over, however with the added veil of night, corners become darker, alleyways are seemingly sinister, and its city streets a cast with an eerie glow, yet for those with a particular mind, all that can look oddly captivating; almost hauntingly beautiful in a way. That’s how we feel at least when we look through of Edo Zollo photo series entitled In the Dark of Night.
The British photographer seems to be more of an owl than a day type of person, as his series sees him hitting the streets of London well after hours, capturing store fronts, lone stragglers and groups of shadows as they ebb and flow around town, lit only by moonlight or lamppost. And thanks to our friends at Huck magazine, we get to read a few words from the man himself on his work. “Before I became a professional photographer, I worked night shifts for years in many different positions – so my body clock is a bit messed-up,” Zollo tells Huck about his affinity for the night. “London is a completely different city at night: different sounds, different sights, different people,” he adds.
