“Around twenty years ago I stumbled upon a semi-hidden world which only truly came alive well after midnight and which existed in the heart of London, in red light-drenched basements behind unmarked Soho doors.
“It was a place and time inhabited by characters who could have tumbled from films of their own making, a sideways glance at a reimagined indefinable past; a world of modern day spivs, foot-high quiffs, lizard skin-lined cars, tooting saxophones, unlicensed speakeasies and sharp suits.
“More than a decade later I began to revisit my old haunts and companions.
“Afterhours Sleaze and Dignity was the result, a tribute to a world where I spent some of my youth and a visualisation of the imaginary film it inspired and which has played behind my eyes ever since – an expression of my own particular Soho of the mind.”
Images from the book can also be viewed in the Gallery.
More information and background on the book can be found on the About page.
