London is the capital city of England and the UK, and is the country's largest metropolitan area. Situated in the South East of the country, eight million people now live within the Greater London conurbation, which is formed from several cities and towns which have merged into one another as they have expanded.


It is now Britain's most populated area and is a huge, sprawling, urbanised landscape. Classed as a global mega-city, London was, and in many ways still is, the centre of the modern world and dominates this corner of the United Kingdom. "I Was Here: The South East" is an ongoing project to document the South East's life in ways that are less familiar and different. It began in 2013 and is on-going.
