These photos are great. Jeroen Swolfs has spent 7 years photographing the street life of 195 capital cities of the world. This enormous outdoor photo exhibition displays one photo from each.

It’s spread all around Canary Wharf. Good places to start would be outside the Jubilee Line exits in Jubilee Park and Montgomery Square, or beside the Thames at Westferry Circus. There’s a map and plan here. The exhibition continues until 24th May, and I can thoroughly recommend it.
