LOST, London by Sergio A. Fernández, 2019

The story of these images of London starts at a second-hand bookshop in Tallahassee, Florida in 1997. Driving from Miami to Boston, with all my possessions in tow, I bought a very damaged copy of Thomas Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow, which took me 2 years to read. Somewhere within those 2 years, a painter friend showed me Frank Auerbach’s paintings of London in ruins after the Blitz. These works showed a city in mid-flight, at once being built and destroyed, all ochre steel girders and piles of charred wood. An image of thin supersonic arches and thick brushstrokes of oil paint combined in my mind and stayed there for almost a decade. They resurfaced in 2008 when I moved to London and started exploring the city with a stained copy of the London A to Z street atlas in my camera bag… - Sergio A. Fernández
