The City of London has been a major settlement for two millennia. It became the epicentre of trading with the world as long ago as the Roman invasion - being established as an outpost along the River Thames in AD47. Even today, time hasn't in any way diminished its global influence. Now, artist and photographer, Clare Newton, explores the City's secretive treasures, but rather than take you on a journey portrayed with traditional photography, she creates the artistry of images through long exposures combined with a technique called 'shutter-dragging', accentuating the past where all that's left is a ghostly residue.
