RPS member Peter Dazeley FRPS has a new book out on 2 October. Unseen London takes you backstage of 50 London buildings, from the capital's great theatres, into the changing rooms of some of our greatest temples of sport, into the heart of the Establishment, the boiler room of the city's infrastructure and behind the scenes at some of the most opulent buildings in the Square Mile. Dazeley's photographs of these buildings - some derelict, but many still working - are astonishing. Each is described with a thoughtful text by Mark Daly which tells the story of how each of these places was created and how they are used.

Peter Dazeley is a celebrated London photographer renowned for fine art and advertising photography. He was born in West Kensington and studied photography at Holland Park School (now known as the Socialist Eton). Being dyslexic he left school at 15 without any formal qualifications. He feels his dyslexia is an asset because it gives him the ability to look at problems and objectives from a different point of view; he is a meticulous planner and imaginative problem solver. He is a life member of the Association of Photographers and in June 2013 the Royal Photographic Society awarded him a Fellowship, their highest distinction, in recognition of original work and outstanding ability.  He is married and has a daughter and a son; they live in Coombe Hill, Surrey.
