Gareth James is showcasing his photo collection of gritty London streets. The shots are of the lower-middle class and come across as candid photography.

The themes Gareth James has explored in this collection are drugs, homelessness, music, and crime. Check out the black and white candid shots in the gallery above.

Implications - In an over-glamorized world of celebrity idolism and the pursuit of perfection, a look into the real world of the middle class is not only fascinating, but necessary. Works such as Gareth James' photography will keep an audience grounded, reminding them that life is complex and not always filled with impeccably airbrushed faces and opulent, glamorous parties.
