Kings Cross by Greg Marsden

L1015263-Edit

“I’ve had a number of life experiences that have shaped how I see the world and take pictures.  From playing bass in a pre-Guns N’ Roses band with Slash and Steve Adler to working in combat zones in Central America and the Middle East to busting bad guys as an undercover cop in Germany. I’ve traveled significantly throughout America, Asia, and Europe; was in Berlin for the fall of the wall and at the flash point in South Central Los Angeles during the LA riots. I’m a trained psychologist and more recently was a senior executive in a large corporation.  A few years ago I decided to ditch the tie, follow a passion, and take pictures full-time. I’ve never been poorer. Or happier.” Greg Marsden‘s   series Kings Cross evokes some neon nostalgia. And although the surface is barely scratched, there’s plenty of genuine daylight Cross moments captured to give the uninitiated a sneak peak into its world; a world where hookers, junkies, flunkies, yuppies and everything in-between live in an imperfect, dysfunctional harmony of sleaze.
