This is a book about the joy of city life. The joy that comes from chance encounters, unexpected sights and sounds, glimmers of beauty flashing out from the grey and the rush of the everyday. The mix of people, shoulder to shoulder, sunbathing in parks, having a coffee, jumping on a bus, daydreaming on a bench. From this thrum of activity and these private spots of solitude, inspiration, emotion and memory are drawn.
Exploring the delight to be found in everyday interactions and chance observations, Look Here charts an affecting map of London, navigating ideas of anonymity and identity, freedom, ownership and community, while reflecting on whether the carousel of clothing we see on those around us holds some deeper meaning.
Wherever she goes, Ana Kinsella looks around her with a keen eye for small, illuminating details, and a love for variety and emotional connection. A gorgeous, layered portrait of a city and its people, Look Here urges us to slow down, look closer and find beauty.
Ana Kinsella is an Irish writer living in London. As a journalist she has written for the Guardian, Frieze, Dazed, n+1, AnOther and others and is now the author of the popular newsletter London Review of Looks. Look Here is her first book.
