In decaying pictures: the streets above London’s lost rivers

It’s not just the Thames that flows through London. Although they’ve long been buried beneath street level, over a dozen other waterways still snake their way through the city. Their routes are captured in these dreamlike photos by SF Said from London’s Lost Rivers, combining watery blues with flame-like artefacts of the decaying Polaroid film used. Take a look at some of the lovely snaps below, and if you want to see more, there’s an exhibition at Maggs Gallery, near Green Park, starting March 21.
