Over the last year, filmmaker Ivan Cash has been visiting various cities across the US and asking random strangers to share the story of the last photo that they took with their phone. For his latest short film, he has come to London…

In his previous films recorded in New York, Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Alabama, Cash has set the tone for the series, which mixes frank confessions with examples of quirky everyday activities. Selfies and dogs also make regular appearances. His skill though is in his ability to capture a flavour of the different cities he visits through their people. He does this again in London – while the shots of the city might be mostly touristy fare, the people featured reveal a deeper picture. The photos they share prompt stories that are by turns sweet, bizarre, poignant and ‘romantic’ (yes, Cash’s London film is the first in the series to feature a cock shot – ah Londoners, you do us proud!). And what’s more, the people shown are nothing but friendly – dispelling, for once, one of the more popular theories about the big smoke.
