Limited edition photographic prints of brutalist architecture, screen printed onto aluminium substrate. Series includes Park Hill, Trellick Tower and Post Office Tower.
"I have photographed a number of buildings that sit within a loose Brutalist principle and rather than present them as photographic prints have produced them as monochrome images printed directly onto an aluminium substrate. I felt this would capture the idea of 'valuation of materials "as found", whist aluminium also resonates with concrete as a material in it's visual neutralness. In 1957 Gio Ponti argued that architecture both as 'plastic and abstract fact, is colourless'. Concrete as a material would seem to have the neutral qualities to illustrate this observation and it is this very lack of colour in the brutalist prints that allow us to judge the forms as architecture"
