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.

Ode to Welbeck Photography featured in Parking Review

The Latest issue of Parking Review (September 2017) has published a lovely feature on my Ode to Welbeck photography project. Welbeck also made the front cover which is great to see! I'm so glad the demolition of this beautiful car park is getting so much coverage and to see how much love it has. Still can't believe it can't be saved, disgraceful.

You can view a snippet of the article here. Or to view the whole photography project please visit my website.

Ode to Welbeck featured on The Spaces

I'm really pleased that my new photography project Ode to Welbeck has been featured on the brilliant online design and architectural magazine The Spaces. Earlier in the year they wrote an article on my ongoing Beautiful Brutalism project and have been great champions of my photography.
