Fascinating Pictures of London Drivers in the Eighties

Chris Dorley-Brown spent two summers in the mid-1980s photographing drivers stuck in traffic jams in and around East London. This series was his first on color film and was created when he intended to document the privatization of Rolls Royce but instead became fascinated by the faces in the traffic caused by the sell-off in the city. The cars, colors, haircuts and expressions of frustration capture the mood and tone of a unique era in Thatcher's Britain.

“I could get close, very close, they were sitting ducks,” he writes in the foreword to his photo book, Drivers in the 1980s.
