London as you've never seen it before: amazing photo series captures 'Ends' of the capital

Anyone who has ever visited, lived or even grown-up in London will have an idea of what a sprawling, disconnected mass encompasses the capital. Just a few tube stops away from the glimmering lights and majestic buildings of famous Zone 1 landmarks such as Piccadilly Circus, Westminster and Green Park lay neighbourhoods unrecognisable from the cosy candlelit “London” sold to the world in magazine spreads and Richard Curtis films.

A new photobook by German-born, London-based Philipp Ebeling explores the lesser-known “ends” of London, the neighbourhoods skirting the city – too urban and far removed from the happening centre and yet a world away from the aspirational banker’s retreat of the genteel Home Counties.

The award-winning photographer captures forgotten spaces in areas including Waltham Forest, Edmonton and Kingston – the hyperlocal spots you only know, if you know.

I felt compelled to know every last corner of the place, to understand it as fully as I could.

-Philipp Ebeling

Over 10 days and 250 kilometres, Ebeling, 39 and his photographer partner Olivia Arthur tackled the city in a doughnut shape, avoiding the jammy centre. The result is London Ends, a photobook where each picture tells its own story of the true, and oft forgotten, capital.

Ebeling has shared nine shots from his book with stylist.co.uk
