Carr Saunders Hall - London



I photographed Carr Saunders Hall when I first started my Beautiful Brutalism project back in 2012 and since then could never resist visiting and taking a few photos on my phone if I ever walked past or was in that part of town. I felt my first visit didn't really do the building justice and I wanted to add it to the project so last week I went back to capture it. The full series of photos can be seen on my website.

I have been unable to find out much about the building and not sure who the architect is. If anyone has any more information about the building and designer I would be very grateful to learn more about it. The rawness of the concrete is stunning and I'm pleased to finally add it to my brutalist project.

Sound of Silence Exhibition

Last week I photographed the wonderful Sound of Silence. It is a site specific exhibition between painter Alessandra Taccia and ceramicist Akiko Hirai in the beautiful St Peter's Church, Cambridge in conjunction with Flow Gallery, London.

The exhibition groups the work of two different artists working in different mediums but exploring the same themes, the idea of pausing, looking and the connection between object and environment. A moment to stop time. The church has a wonderful calming energy to it and the artwork looked as though it was a permanent fixture within the church. It was an amazing project to photograph and so lovely to work with the artists and Flow Gallery.

The whole project can be viewed here and the exhibition runs until 12th May 2018.

New Work - Chichester Festival Theatre

In October I finally photographed Chichester Festival Theatre for my Beautiful Brutalism project. I had wanted to visit and photograph it since 2011 when the project first started and I wasn't disappointed! It's an extremely elegant theatre and the geometric details in the foyer were beautiful. The new work can be seen here.

My photography of Chichester Festival theatre was also featured on Divisare's homepage last week along with my National Theatre photography.


Prince Street Car Park - Bristol

Over the weekend I was in the beautiful city of Bristol catching up with friends and photographing the stunning Prince Street Car Park to add to my ongoing Beautiful Brutalism project.
The car park was designed by Kenneth, Wakeford, Jarram & Harris in 1966 and is very similar to the design of Welbeck St Car Park in London. It was a great building to photograph and I look forward to uploading all the images to my Beautiful Brutalism project over the next few weeks.
