“Butturini's London depicts the poor and the working class who failed to make good in the 1960s, contrasting that with the tourist view”. Martin Parr In 1969 Gian Butturini was just over 30 years old and a successful graphic designer working in advertising. His journey as a photographer began at Victoria Station when he saw a young man staggering by with a syringe embedded in a vein. He began investigating 1960s London through the Nikon hanging from his neck. Butturini's photographs of London are full of pain and sarcasm but also joy and lyricism ― hippies and fashionable young women share space with the homeless, the pacifist demonstrations and the orators at Speakers' Corner. Butturini's London, in the photographer's own words, ""is true and bare ... I did not ask it to pose.""
