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.

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.

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.

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.
