[brutal london]

2018 AFAR Travel Photography Awards - Finalist


the [brutal london] photo series is comprised of nine black-and-white shots of some of london's famed brutalist buildings: the national theatre, rowley way/alexandra road estate, and the barbican centre

these grand structures can provoke a sense of awe in some while also being paradoxical by nature. each structure can be generalized as yet another concrete building - one out of the city's many - while simultaneously being revered with cult-like status by brutalism lovers around the world. furthermore, through location and function (the former being a theatre in the south bank and the latter two, places of residence), these buildings are quite literally breathing entities. however, each respective building boasts the ability to command moments of silence, both inside and out, as though acting solely as the material they're made of


these photographs allude to that stillness - and their almost loving aura that can be felt within their boundaries
