Welbeck Street Car Park featured on Dezeen

Unfortunately Welbeck Street Car Park has been completely covered so demolition can start. After 2 years photographing this stunning building my project has sadly come to an end. So it's lovely to see the project featured on Dezeen. The whole article can be seen here.

Brutal Textures: Sculptural Ceramics

Ceramicist Matt Raw is running a series of ceramic workshops at the Barbican inspired by it's brutalist architecture.

I have worked with Matt in the past photographing past exhibitions and his working processes so was thrilled when he contacted me to say he took some inspiration from the photographs I have posted on Instagram of the Barbican for the workshop. The classes look great so if you're a fan of brutalism and ceramics check it out.

For updates from Matt check out his Instagram page.

New Work - National Theatre Studio

It was great to start the new year with a bit of time to work on my personal project, Beautiful Brutalism and add the very elegant National Theatre Studio to the project. Designed by Lyons, Israel & Ellis in 1958 it was built to house the scenery workshops, painting studio, wardrobe and offices for The Old Vic which later became the National Theatre. It is one of the earliest and purest examples of 'New Brutalism' which emerged from corbusian aesthics of raw, expressed shuttered concrete. It is the only architect-designed theatre workshop ever built in Britain so was Grade II listed in 2006 and carefully refurbished in 2008 by Haworth Tompkins Architects.
