New Article as Concrete Correspondence - Umbrella Magazine

    In my second article as concrete correspondent for Umbrella Magazine I talk about photographing the little known brutalist gem of the Spiritualist Church, Brighton. An unusual designed building that really stands out, it was great to photograph and the church very kindly gave me permission to document the interior which is rarely seen. The full article and more photographs of this unique church can be seen here . The next column will be out next year!

Brutalism in Photos Feature

    Oracle Time Magazine featured a lovely positive article about brutalist architecture in London in their June issue of the magazine and online.  Along with photographs from my ongoing personal project Beautiful Brutalism they also featured the work of photographers Simon Phipps and Hayley Goodwin. The online article can be read here .  

Concrete Correspondent - Umbrella Magazine

    I'm pleased to annouce that I will be working with Umbrella Magazine as a 'concrete correspondent'. In my column I will be talking about buildings I have photographed for my personal photography project - Beautiful Brutalism. My first column is about the wonderful National Theatre by Denys Lasdun in London and the article can be read here .  The next column will be published next month!

My C20 Detail book

    During the first lockdown in March 2020, the 20th Century Society started a small project on Instagram asking people to pick their favourite C20 detail. I was thrilled to be asked to contribute and after much thought I decided to pick the iconic precast concrete 'diamonds' of Welbeck Street Car Park as my favourite detail from a twentieth century building. It soon picked up momentum and at the end of the year the project was published in this wonderful book celebrating details from all kinds of architecture and design from all over the world. Being one of the fifty contributors is fantastic. I'm hoping it introduces more people to the wonderful Welbeck design which is sadly now gone and other fabulous designs from this great era of architecture. For more details please visit here .
