Neither documentary Nor fiction

“Neither documentary nor fiction” - this book is a comparison of Patrick Keiller’s London, and my own psychogeographical walks around the city. Using selected content holding significant resonance to myself from the film; it acts as a guide to fictionally narrate happenings of my own walks. Set with no real time frame, it has the potential to show the everyday that is excused as monotony by Londoners each day. Even though the text throughout the book, extracted from Keiller’s London  and my own commentary, may not be of the same time in which the pictures are presented, its relativity holds relevance between my own wanderings and Robinson’s.After initially being inspired by the writings of Alexander Herzen, in which he wrote, “There is no town in the world which is more adapted for training one away from people and training one into solitude than London.” Keiller identifies the idea of there being a different age, but same problem - always existent in London. This concept is still remaining 24 years after the film was set place. With a Conservative Government back into action and the same changes in the city occurring. I feel that myself and Keiller hold the same nostalgia to what happens in this city.The book isn’t intended to be immediately understood, but to have a representation that this city will forever be in a different age, yet face similar problems. The layout takes you through a fictional wandering, allowing for moments of pausing and consideration of the landscape. With so many remarkable people and places, it is more than just a one party state. The structure is deficient to the surroundings, as anyone can make their own London.
