Comment on this story on the

Uli Larosa, Photographer, born in Italy, lives and works in the UK, having been an SW15 resident for the past five years. Uli works at the Financial Times and runs a photography business, signing his photos with the nick-name VanGu.

The exhibition of his work is at Putney Library from 16th - 29th January with the library opening hours.

"Last year I took on a project that I entitled  "Putney Toy Town" where I used a different technique to my usual style. The technique is called tilt-shift and it simulates the effect of looking down on a miniature. I am very proud to have received so much recognition from people in Putney and worldwide. There is something magical about seeing your own town under a different light. I have to thank the management of the Putney Wharf who let me work from their building, giving me access to the fantastic penthouse."

Some of Uli's work, of both styles (Defragmantation technique and Putney Toy Town), are now available to be purchased directly from his website (vangu.vpweb.co.uk) or at the Pryor Bank Café in Bishops Park near Putney Bridge where his work is exhibited. Pryor Bank Café is a registered charity which supports and houses vulnerable and disabled ex-servicemen and women. Part of the proceeds from the photos purchased will go to the charity. People can also visit and add me as friend on Facebook (Vangu Media London).

"My next project is to capture more people's stories and some of the changes that are happening in our area. I would be happy to hear from people who might have some interesting stories to tell or who are working on a special project that they would like to be captured artistically."
