The calendar's April and September pages

This is the fifth limited edition calendar produced by the SE1-based photographer whose work has a strong following.

April shows some of the six hundred space hoppers breaking a world record on the Millennium Bridge whilst September recalls the feast on Southwark Bridge during the Mayor's Thames Festival.

Also captured are helmeted pikemen commemorating Charles I's execution in Whitehall and the annual clown service at Hoxton when clowns in costume attend Holy Trinity to remember their founder Grimaldi.

The calendar's cover image is one of Antony Gormley's statues placed on Waterloo Bridge as part of the recent Blind Light exhibition at The Hayward gallery.

Also available is Steve's 130-page photographic book Event: A celebration of London's rituals, festivities and eccentrics published this autumn; 15.
