In the City is the largest British photographic portrait project of recent years. Edward Barber is one of the few contemporary photographers who shoots portraits on location with a large format view camera. He has used the formality of this medium to explore London's Square Mile and sitters range from dispatch riders and cleaners to City figures such as Sir John Browne, Dame Sheila Masters and Sir Eddie George. As the writer Jonathan Glancey says: "Ed Barber's luminous portraits reveal the City is not just for suits. It's an intensely complex organism."
