Full image caption

A photographer is himself photographed whilst he sets up his long lens on an evening in the West End. However it is the two youths waiting by the lamp post which really draw the eye. Collins created a number of night-time photographs playing with the bright lights of the West End to record the characters enjoying the buzz of fifties nightlife.
