This exhibition crossed the Atlantic to the Museum of the City of New York to let us rediscover the streets of London: its Victorian buildings, its beautiful cars, and the places where the people spend their time. The exhibition was intended to coincide with the opening of the Olympics at the end of July. First shown in 2010 at the Museum of London, London Street Photography attracted more than 125,000 visitors—a record. The show features around 140 images taken between 1860 and 2010 by more than 50 photographers, including John Thompson, László Moholy-Nagy, Nick Turpin, Paul Strand, Robert Frank, Diane Arbus and Jacob Riis.
