DIMINANT CONCRETE

In this series of architectural photographs London's urban spaces are explored, in particular the brutalist style of the city. Image‐making is bound up in our experience of urban space. In artistic and academic practice, contemporary urban photography has critically reworked street photography traditions, embracing its energy and spontaneity, while inviting a more dialogic and reflexive approach. Although the use of urban photography has been somewhat limited in cultural geography research, the practice has enormous potential to complement and enhance contemporary enquiries in the field – particularly those that highlight feelings, experience, and textures of place (like brutalist buildings in London) and draw from more‐than‐representational approaches.
