Back to Brutalism

After a few months away from my Beautiful Brutalism project it was lovely to have a few days to work on it again and set up two more shoots. The first building I photographed was the Royal College of Physicians, London designed by Denys Lasdun in 1959. The building has a more classical feel then his most notable design, The National Theatre on the Southbank but still has those lovely angles and simple lines which I enjoy photographing.





The next building I wanted to add to my project is a smaller and less well known brutalist structure, Welbeck Street Car Park in Central London. Built in 1970 by Michael Blampied it is a real gem. With it's interlocking diamond-shaped concrete panels it definitely makes a statement, in an era when even a simple car park was well designed and didn't just blend into the urban landscape it still looks amazing.

Tortus Copenhagen

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Eric Landon and Karin Blach Nielsen of Tortus Copenhagen. I visited their beautiful studios in the heart of Copenhagen and the images from the shoot can be found here.

Impressions of Serpentine Pavilion 2013 Press Day

Summer has finally arrived which means the opening of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion. This year it is designed by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto and I had the pleasure of photographing it today. It was my first time of going to the press day so wasn't sure of what to expect, I certainly didn't expect the scrum of photographers all trying to get "the shot" of Sou Fujimoto.



The pavilion itself is amazing and it was fantastic to photograph, below are a few images from the shoot and I will be uploading more to my website -

The exhibition is also coming into it's last week so if you're in London take a look!

Sample 13 Exhibition now on!




On Thursday night the Private View for Sample 13 at theprintspace took place in London. I had a great evening with a fantastic turn out and it was lovely to share the experience with friends. I also got to meet some of the other exhibitors and talk to them about their work. I always love finding out what other creatives are up to and the exhibition had such a great mix of styles and themes it was really interesting to find out more about the ideas and history behind the images.

To see more photos from the night and more information about the exhibition please visit theprintspace blog and for more information about the artists involved you can get an information pack here.

Thanks again to theprintspace for all their help and a fantastic night and to Christine Santa Ana for curating the show and giving me the opportunity to be part of such a great and diverse exhibition.



The exhibition runs until Tuesday 30th April 2013

Sample 13 Exhibition

I am very proud to have been selected to be part of this year's Sample 13 exhibition, a group show of artists and photographers that are clients of theprintspace, London. The exhibition displays fresh new artists/photographers and comprises of an exciting selection of work from Kyler Zeleny’s Canadian landscapes from his travelogue ‘Out West’ to the self portraiture of Jocelyn Allen in the series ‘The Many Faces of JFA’ to the delicate illustrations of Holly Sharpe and the whimsical skies in Sinem Mucur’s work. My 'sample' is from the series Beautiful Brutalism, which is an ongoing exploration of Brutalist architecture from around the UK.

The exhibition runs from the 5th - 30th April 2013, 9-7pm mon-fri and admission is free.

I am very proud to say that my architectural images are now represented by the RIBA Photo Library, ribapix. The Collection contains 1.5 million images of architecture world-wide in a variety of formats. The earliest photographs in the collection date from the 1850s and it contains the work of many internationally renowned architectural photographers.

I will be adding new projects very soon!

Edmund de Waal - A Local History

Last Autumn I photographed ceramicist Edmund De Waal's new site specific installation at the new Alison Richard Building on the Sidgwick Site of Cambridge University. The work consists of three vitrines filled with porcelain, sunk below the paving outside the building. The work makes you stop and look, to take a moment before entering the building. I found the work really interesting to photograph and when the light hit the installations it really highlighted the different colours and shapes of the porcelain.

The whole project has been added to my website and can be viewed here. Some images have also been added to CRASSH Pinterest board here.
