London burns

London town is on fire tonight and I’ve just been reminded of a conversation I had with Finnish photojournalist Niklas Meltio at last year’s Visa Pour L’ Image photojournalism festival.

He was saying I should think about Afghanistan and I said “with all the austerity measures coming into the UK this year it could all blow apart. I’ll stay put.” I’ll be honest. I didn’t really believe it in that moment. It was a mathematical possibility. A dim chance. Now, with lots of friends running around in the dark of Camden, Hackney, etc, trying to make sense of it all, London feels very much on edge.
