Iain Sinclair goes backwards through history – exploring the spaces beneath London’s orbit railway.

‘Writer, documentarist, film maker, poet, flaneur, metropolitan prophet and urban shaman, keeper of lost cultures and futurologist’, Iain Sinclair has been one of the foremost interpreters of London of the last 40 years. His eclectic body of work includes such notable publications as Lud Heat (1975), Downriver (1991), London Orbital (2002) and Ghostmilk (2011).
