Photographer's Note

Le quartier de la City, à Londres, présente de nombreux et intéressants contrastes architecturaux.

C'est en effet à la fois le plus ancien quartier de Londres, mais aussi celui dans lequel se construisent le plus de hauts buildings modernes.

D'innombrables anciennes églises composent le quartier, et sont souvent, comme ici, juxtaposées à des constructions victoriennes et beaucoup plus modernes comme l'immeuble 30 St Mary Axe.

A noter :
. La City fait l'objet d'une administration autonome, distincte de celle du reste de la ville de Londres.
. Environ 10.000 personnes y habitent, et 500.000 y travaillent.
