Photographer Bob Mazzer has been taking pictures on the London Underground for the last four decades. If his surreptitious portraits of anonymous Londoners look familiar, that’s because we’ve featured a few of them before on the Time Out blog.

We’re huge fans of East End-born Bob’s work, particularly his shots from the 1980s, a time when you could happily puff away on a fag on your morning commute and when Bob himself worked as a projectionist at a King’s Cross porn cinema.

Now, Bob’s tube photography has been compiled into a gorgeous 200-page book, published on June 12 by Spitalfields Life Books, priced £20. Pictures from 'Bob Mazzer – Underground' will also be on show at the Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch from June 12 to July 13.
