A documentary photobook by American photographer Nancy Hellebrand. Londoners contains a series of portraits taken by an outsider, mainly shot in North London and of the working classes. The realist images feature the sitters in their homes, surrounded by possessions which are loaded with meaning. Titles include 'Rock fan' (a Ziggy Stardust wannabe), 'Man with three weeks to live', 'Marion in a bed-sitter', and 'Bernice alone'. The book coincided with an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
