The tumultuous events of the past week have left Britain reeling with shock. As the cost to businesses, properties and society at large is counted, it suddenly seems pertinent to also reflect upon what is great about Britain.

The Fitzrovia Photography Prize at the Diemar/Noble gallery in central London celebrates the many facets of life in the capital - one of the areas hardest hit by the riots - via photos taken within a mile of the gallery. With entries from within the UK and far beyond, the images highlight everyday moments in London that are both perceptible and extraordinary.

Soho, London 2004

"I was hurrying through the back street of Soho from Tottenham Court Road to meet my wife at Andrew Edmunds for dinner on a bitter cold night with freezing rain, the rime visible glittereng on the metal tables and chairs. As I passed the fogged window of a café, I observed the couple inside looking like ghosts and made two frames."

ABOVE: Berwick Street (winner)

"This is a reflection in the window of the Endurance pub in Berwick Street. The market is reflected behind. What looks like a veil is the wire mesh of the reinforced glass. The light illuminating her face is from a piece of paper on an adjacent window warning that toilets are for customers only."

ABOVE: Legs

"You get some incredibly stylish people in London. Sometimes I like taking a different perspective, like doing a series only of people’s legs and feet. It makes you wonder what the rest of the person looks like, but also makes you realise how much of a person’s character you can gather from a small fragment like this. That’s how this photograph happened. I love the contrast of the leggings pattern against the zebra crossing."
