Museum of Making Construction Photography


I was recently commissioned by White Arkitekter to photograph the construction and finished pavilion for Clerkenwell Design Week 2016. The Museum of Making, a Swedish barn – references White Arkitekter’s Scandinavian heritage, transposing this agricultural motif into an urban context. White’s team had chosen to deconstruct this Scandinavian archetype and showcase its simplicity in a new way.

As a photographer it's great to document the construction as well as the finished building or structure so this was a great commission and was fascinating to see Nicholas Alexander team build the pavilion over 4 days using Equitone Facades.

Below is a series of photographs of the process -

Welbeck Street Car Park due for demolition

"In summary the existing car park building has no particular aesthetic or historic value, and detracts from the setting of nearby heritage assets by virtue of it's bland and uninspired elevational treatment"
KM Heritage Consultant 2017


The inevitable has happened and yesterday, Thursday 10th August, Westminster Council approved the demolition of Welbeck Street Car Park. Although it has been on the table for a long time it's such a shame that yet another stunning piece of brutalist architecture will be destroyed to make room for a bland, non-descript hotel with no particular aesthetic value. I still can't understand how Historic England and the heritage consultants used can't see it's aesthetic quality or structural ingenuity and therefore listing it so it might survive just a bit longer. It will be a great loss!

I have been shooting the last few months of it's life since March and hope to undertake a few more shoot…

Photography on a Postcard Artist

I'm very proud to announce that I have been chosen as one of the Photography on a Postcard Artist. The above image from my Beautiful Brutalism project will be on sale along with lots of other upcoming and more well known photographers. The public will be able to purchase a ticket guaranteeing them a photograph, although they won’t know which card they have won until the show closes on the 27th October. Each photograph will be an edition of one and will come with a signed certificate of authenticity. All the money raised will go to The Hepatitis C Trust’s campaign to eliminate hepatitis C from the UK by the year 2030. Hopefully a lot of money will be raised for this great charity.
