ANNUAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS 2022 WINNERS ANNOUNCED!
2nd Place Winner / Architecture: History & LandmarksBACK TO GALLERY
These images form part of a larger, ongoing series of post modern architecture in London, focusing on Brutalism. Brutalism, or ‘New Brutalism’ has its roots in modernism but emerged as a movement against the architectural mainstream. It placed an emphasis on materials, textures and construction as well as functionality and equality. The term came to refer to the functional raw concrete buildings emerging in the UK in the post-war period and thriving until the 1970s. Brutalism was meant to represent a new Britain, a fairer country built on equality and opportunity.
Images in this series feature the icons of Brutalist architecture in London and include the Ministry of Justice building (Queen Anne's Gate), Trellick Tower, Weston Rise housing estate, the National Theatre, Civil Aviation Authority building (One Kemble street), the Barbican estate, the Economist building and Cotton Gardens housing estate.
I’m an avid, amateur fine art photographer currently based in London.
I began my own journey with travel photography, aiming to capture the essence of each of the places I visited. Inspired by the contemporary environment of Singapore, I later focused my attention on cityscapes and architecture. More recently, I find myself attracted to nature and seascapes.
